How did BP get to Hawaii? I suspect she was not sailed there....

Thats wicked cool! I have a question though (like hikermor's); is it an actual wooden ship, is is a shell on a more modern ship, or is it simply a mockup-not really seaworthy? Always wondered that...

I may be wrong, but I don't think the masts are anywhere near tall enough for it to actually sail.

Doesn't rule out the possibility of a powered ship, though.

From the photo, it appears the topmasts have been taken down, something the Concordia, in retrospect, would have been wise to do...

The rest of the sails and masts will probably be added to The Black Pearl digitally in post production.

That's just a guess based on the pictures of the Black Pearl that pop up on the web from time to time.

"The filmmakers scrapped the original ship, which wasn't really a ship at all. It was a set built from the hull up on top of a barge, which was towed into position for filming. ... the producers felt it was in their best interest to build The Black Pearl as a seaworthy vessel.

"... To speed its construction, Heinrichs built the Black Pearl around an existing 109-foot-long ship named Sunset; which was docked in Bayou La Batre, Alabama. "The result ... was that from the waterline up you had this beautiful pirate ship. The Sunset is still in there somewhere, with engines, fuel and water tanks, a galley and bunks."
