Queen Anne's Revenge Honolulu Drydock





Terrible to see how this great ship has been neglected & allowed to deteriorate. Should be a law against it!!!

This isn't the original - the original ship, Blackbeard's ship, is a wreck outside Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. They've been recovering cannon from her as well as other artifacts. I actually remember when the National Geographic Society announced they'd recovered cannon back in 2013.

So, never fear! This replica is most likely something commissioned for Pirates of the Caribbean. :)

I suppose the problem is that everything costs so much money these days.

Thanks Laura, I hate getting old!!! I knew of the cannons found, just not thinking! Still a shame to see this replica neglected, a lot of work went into constructing this ship.
Thank you again, appreciated.
Regards, Keith.

I agree, it's a darned shame to see her rotting, but I also think some of the "rot" was intentional for the movie.
