Thanks, Yes I do. The basement will become increasingly cluttered as the year progresses but I'll only take things down if a workman needs to get to the furnace for instance.

Outstanding! The detail, the music, the entire atmosphere just top notch. I LOVE the cat skellie.

That is amazing! So much detail it's hard to take it all in. Can you show how the ships wheel turns? What kind of mechanism? I'm planning a pirate display next year and am saving this to favorites for future reference. Really Nice!

Wow you went all out! Can't begin to list the things I liked about it but let's start with the pilot wheel. Great animation. Honestly this is too good for the basement!! Who got to see it? Did you do a party?

Thanks for the great feedback everybody.

The Ship's wheel moves with a wiper motor and linkage.
Here's a pic:

I threw a pirate party and I brought the trick-or-treaters down for a free haunt.

The gems were bought online last year. Do a search for "diamond" and "paperweight"

The corpses and skeletons are all store/ebay bought but I did dress them all myself.

I absolutely love those wood planks. I tore them from old pallets that have been weathering outside for many years. The pictures don't do them justice. They look great.

That's got to be one of the best Halloween pirate displays I've seen.
