This is one of a few ship in bottle projects I'm working on but since it was pirate related i thought why not post it here. I did a little research into the Satisfaction and read that she was an English Frigate. The height of Henry Morgans campaign was in the late 1660's to Early 1670's. So I did some research in the books that I have and found an English Frigate called the Resolution that was built in 1667. I figured it would be as close as any one could get to how the ship might have looked so I'm modeling the Satisfaction after those plans. This was the original bottle i thought of using but have since changed. I show this picture though because it shows generally what she will look like. Here is my progress so far. Not much to look at but getting there. The ship will be a split hull so that half the ship will go into the bottle at a time. When fully installed the ship will be taller then the opening of the bottle giving the illusion that there is no way it could have fit. Here's the new bottle I'm using. I still have a bit of sanding to do to get the upper portion in. I'm toying with the idea of putting something in the bottle neck but I haven't decided yet. That's where I'm at so far. I'll post more as she progress's
