This is a typical coastal pirate sloop or schooner armed with small
cannon and carrying 40-75 ruthless pirates. Small single or double
masted vessels like this actually represented the most common form of
pirate; only the most successful pirates had larger vessels and few
pirate ships were over 200 tons. The Fiery Dragon, ironically destroyed
by fire in 1721, was typical.
To threaten larger merchant vessels the sloop relies on speed, superior
numbers in boarding, and intimidation.
