The Ferryman is a Xebec (Chebec), it is fast, stable and large. He is 260 tons and carries 24 cannons. In addition, he can carry up to 200 crewmen. The Ferryman has a pronounced, overhanging bow and stern, and three masts which are lateen-rigged. In addition to sails, he can be rowed. He was built with a narrow floor to achieve a higher speed than the Stray Dog's victims. The lateen rig (triangular sails) of The Freeyman allowes for the ship to sail close hauled to the wind often giving it an advantage in pursuit or escape. The use of oars or sweeps allowes the ship to approach vessels who are becalmed, or cross the Calm Belt if necessary. His figurehead is a lone skeletal figure, shrouded in a hooded cloak, stretching out it's right arm. holding a large ornamental lantern. It has the Stray Dog Pirates' Jolly Roger printed on the main-sail, which is a dark-green colour.
- The Jolly Roger image is literally a screen shot from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, episode 27 "Interlude Party". I was watching it the other day and one of the characters held up this bottle of scotch whiskey, and i thought "Ha, that looks like a Jolly Roger.. The Stray Dog Pirates.. that sounds pretty cool". And now 2 days later i have all these ideas about a new character Crawford Quade. So i went back and made a screen-shot of the bottle, and i'll eventually develop it into a proper Jolly Roger.
