General description:
This is perhaps the most destructive Cursed ship in the game. I'll go over this ships every nook and cranny to help anyone who allies themselves to the Cursed.

Uses:
This ship is clearly ment for battle. Where it lacks in speed it makes up for in cannon rolls. With a ship that has 5 masts and 2L cannons on all of them, this makes it one of the deadliest ships in the game!

Strategies and game play:
This ship is a battle ship, it could carry gold but that's not going to be your primary objective. This ship is an expensive ship and needs some crew to get it to be your main attacker. I reccomend this ship in a big point game because any of the Davy Jones crew pieces would make this ship even better. It's a slow ship too, with only S for its speed. Put a helmsman on her though and she will catch up to most ships. Sea monsters work well with her too as means of distractions or just to take down those pesky runners. This ship has a good variety of cursed crew to go on her from the Curse of Davy Jones set.

Combos with other miniatures:
White crew and Davy Jones go really well with The Flying Dutchman, you kill other crew and sink there ships to the deapths of the ocean. Calypsos is a great sea monster to help corner other ships for the Dutchman to destroy. Don't forget this ship has Broadsides attack! (That's insane by the way)

Ways to counteract it:
This ship is definatley going to be tough to bring down, I reccomend some cancelers to annoy the opponent. If you have a swarm of ships, you may be able to take her down but the most successful way is to have ships that can run like hell!

Strengths/Pros:
1.) Has 5 Masts
2.) INSANE cannon rolls
3.) BROADSIDE ATTACK!!!

Weaknesses/Cons:
1.) It's expensive, going to be half your build in a 40 point game
2.) It's slow without a helmsman
3.) It is subdued by cancelers

Artwork and aesthetics:
Te artwork looks great! It has a ghostly look to it and definatley gets attention.
Overall rating:
I give this ship an amazing 9/10

No doubt this is a beast of a ship! Actually, 17 pts isn't bad for a broadsides 5 mast-er. Cursed ships always are more expensive anyway. The Divine Dragon comes close but it only has 1 more mast and less effective guns, even after the ability applies. Having all L range guns can be a drawback an enemy can manipulate too.
