These pirate ships are very nice quick and easy wargame ships.
In 1/72nd scale they are just over 40 feet long.
The Pinta with Columbus and the Discovery at Jamestown were only about 50 feet in length.
They sailed from the Old World to the New World.
They each had a crew of about two dozen.
These ships probably could have made the voyage too, but it would not be a pleasure cruise.
Certainly you would want to be in convoy with a few larger ships in case of trouble.
