I'm trying to collate a selection of names for the player to choose from to call their ship.
Please post here in the following format (in the quote) so that things don't get confusing:
The Gorgones, they are creatures from greek mythology.
The Iron Fist
The Cracken - more greek mythology, but this one actually portrays to the sea\
heres some ships from real history:
The Schooner has a narrow hull, two masts and is less than 100 tons. She is generally rigged with two large sails suspended from spars reaching from the top of the mast toward the stern. Other sails sometimes were added, including a large headsail attached to the bowsprit. She had a shallow draft which allowed her to remain in shallow coves waiting for her prey. The Schooner is very fast and large enough to carry a plentiful crew. It was a favorite among both pirates and smugglers.
The Shebec was favoured among Barbary pirates for she was fast, stable and large. They could reach 200 tons and carried from 4 to 24 cannon. In addition she carried from 60 to 200 crewmen. The Shebec had a pronounced overhanging bow and stern, and three masts which were generally lateen-rigged. In addition to sails she was rowed.
The Sloop was fast, agile, and had a shallow draft. Her size could be as large as 100 tons. She was generally rigged with a large mainsail which was attached to a spar above, to the mast on its foremost edge, and to a long boom below. She could sport additional sails both square and lateen-rigged. She was used mainly in the Caribbean and Atlantic. Today's sailing Yacht is essentially a sloop.
The name Tartan applies to an Arabic ship which was fast, manueverable, and narrow. She sported one mast with a lateen mainsail and a small foresail on her bowsprit. In addition she carried around 30 oars, 15 per side. Sometimes a small mizzen mast was added with a lateen sail. She was used in the Mediterranean by the Barbary and Corsair pirates

Death Merchant Marine
A Painful Berth
I Keel You
The Black Catamaran

and i say
'Black Moon' is good
oh, and it wouldn't be I.S.S. it would be just I.S. for Imperial Ship or I.N.S. for Imperial Navy Ship, and that would be government owned ships that usually have prefixes, so a pirate ship wouldn't have to have one.
The floating log
the golden maiden
The Queen, The Dark Fork
The Duke of Anvil
The Scourge's Galleon
This is pretty cool one I heard of:
By day the honourable and royal galleon sails the seas as 'The Darting Heir', yet rearrange the letters and by night it stalks the sea as the prioate ship 'The Nightraider'. A schizophrenic ship!
