see the old pirate ships came in several sizes.
this was the smallest type small hull no added middle segment
then there were the medium vessels
then the large vessels
now the top of the line pirate set is a medium ship.
im mean right now the pirates are kind of lack luster they do have some interesting new peices, but over all theres only two forces now instead of 4, being pirates, armada, imperials, and islanders. and the ship selection has taken a like toll, were once there were a plethora of ships now only one remains.
