Pirate Ships

There was a variety of ships that sailed the seas during pirate times. Some of the most common were: galley, schooner, Nantucket whaler, galleon, brig, and sloop. Research how theses vessels looked and what differentiated them from each other. Then select one type of vessel and sketch an example of how it would have looked. Your sketch should pay special attention to those characteristics which distinguished your vessel the most.
