Jdub, the ship is eight feet wide by about 10 feet deep. The "starboard" side is about 18 inches off the ground (front) and the back side is about three feet off the ground, which gives it about a 35 degree tilt for the shipwrecked look, and also makes things on the deck easy to see for your visitors. The mast sits out in front of the wreck about two feet, and is about 14 or 15 feet high at the top of the pirate flag.
The cannon is made using the plans from another website, except I used monster mud over the wire frame instead of mortar, as the website had used. Turns out that monster mud can be sanded down to a finish that is as smooth as metal! I also added the rings around the barrel using foam pipe insulator cut in half. I have to go look up the site with the cannon instructions, then I'll put it in another post.
Thanks for your comments!
