Mini Pirate Kit 11.75" Long. Solid Wood Hull.
Of all the pirates and buccaneers who sailed the mighty seas, Sir Henry Morgan is among the most remembered. Immortalized by Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum produced today in Puerto Rico, Henry Morgan was no ordinary pirate. In his heyday he was a privateer empowered by the British government to fight against Spain. Privateers were little more than legal pirates but Morgan was unique. King Charles II made him a Knight of the Realm in 1673 and Lt. Governor of Jamaica.
