| The Sea Witch
The Sea Witch is a 3 masted, square rigged vessel
weighing approximately 280 tons. It is pierced for 16 cannon
along its 80 ft. length, though fewer than that are usually put to use.
She can be sailed with a crew of as few as 12 hard pressed sailors, though
she has room for as many as 30, in cramped quarters. Her current Captain
maintains the total at somewhere between 17 and 21.

The name of the vessel is painted in red and reads:
