Shipwrecked Sailor's Island
A lonely, lost pirate survives a terrible shipwreck, only to find himself alone on a small atoll far out to sea. (Bonus sneak peak inside.)
About this creation
The main picture is the view of the South side of the small atoll. Five small islands that make this the home of our wayward pirate friend. There is a small monkey which found its way here, as well as two parrots. The tall palm tree offered shade until enough driftwood and salvage could be collected to build the hut. Our pirate friend was not the only survivor though, the ship's cat made it too.



A view from the East shows that not all the treasure went down with the ship. Our crafty friend has saved at least one chest, hidden just inside the doorway to his hut. I wonder what's in it?



A view from the West where the pirate has a drying rack of freshly caught fish sunning. His nets are back out in the water. A couple of crabs are fighting on the beach.



A view from the North, showing a few of the rare flowers that live on the island. Here you can also see that the house is perched atop the barrels salvaged from the wreck.



A view from above. The hut's dried palm fronds make a decent enough roof during all but the most horrible of storms.



Our pirate friend is going clam hunting. He's already pulled up seaweed to dry in the sun, and has his canvas sack ready for a trip in the crows nest that he salvaged to use as a coracle. A bit of tar from the barrels has made it nice and water tight, and it works well with the oar he found from the missing long boats.



Ah, the ship's cat has gotten one of the fish and is hiding under the smaller palm on the atoll's western most island. The kitty has learned to swim enough to navigate the small lagoon. The pirate doesn't like the thefts, but enjoys the occasional company the cat provides.

Special Pirate Bonus!

A sneak peak at my next big pirate build. I'm working on a tall ship design with at least 10 cannon. I've no idea when I'll finish it, but here's about 6 hours worth of work on it. (Added April 15, 2017)

Probably a good idea, I am known for my excessive detail even on parts no one will ever see, it's part of what is making the ship I am working on such a pain. Heck at one point I was even considering raising up all the roads I build to allow space for a realistic sewer system!

Quoting Scott Bertaut Everything to the layout of the islands to the leaf roof is really well done. I like this build a lot, and it is a nice story to go with it. The ship you are working on is also quite good, though I don't think the cannons should be practically touching the ones on the other side. Obviously LEGO doesn't have to be realistic, but cannons need to be able to roll backward in order to reload them and to counter the recoil when fired.
Oh I know, but I'm limited in the hull because I'm using the old molded hull parts from the 1980's plus a few from the Brick Bounty that was the last Pirate option. Since I'm trying to keep them close to the waterline (which is closer to accurate on a Sloop of War - 1 deck, 18 or fewer guns, max 3 sails) and it's a trade off. In this case I don't intend for the interior of the hull to be readily accessible so the pitch back (and thus my need for ropes and chains) goes out the proverbial window as I opt for a better exterior look on the ship over the more correct and functional interior.

I think the fish drying rack is my favorite detail.
