Ship's Helm & Cannonballs Replica from Safari
The feared black flag with white skull and cross bones associated with pirate ships is called a Jolly Roger. Pirates are associated with bloody sea battles, although most rarely used guns. Instead, they would board a vessel, steal what they wanted, leaving their victims too afraid to react. The goods that pirates obtained illegally were called booty or loot.
Two essential parts to every pirate ship are the helm, or steering wheel, and the ammunition, usually cannonballs. Without the helm, a pirate can only go where the wind directs him, and without the ammunition, he can't protect and defend the treasure. Take home these two necessities and set your sails!
