Is correct in showing several of the pirates as black; indeed, Dodgers girl classy sassy and a bit smart assy vintage shirt probably not enough of them are black, as real crews were often one third or more of African descent.Port Royal is all wrong; it was situated on a sandspit, without, alas, those towering cliffs from the movie. Port Royal had been virtually destroyed by an earthquake in , and the Jamaican capital relocated to Kingston, so Elizabeth Swann shouldn’t have been there at all. Tortuga really was a pirate lair in the , but by the time of the buccaneers had long ago abandoned it. The real main pirate base of the Caribbean in the early century was Nassau in the Bahamas, wilder and more lawless than either Port Royal or Tortuga, but without nearly such a cool name. In any case, even Nassau had been mostly tamed by the , thanks to Woodes Rogers and a turncoat pirate named Ben Hornigold.
The Black Pearl Dodgers girl classy sassy and a bit smart assy vintage shirt actually isn’t that bad. Yes, the height of the sterncastle is grossly exaggerated. And she has a lateen mizzen sail, which would have been close to being obsolete in the , but if we assume that she’s at least years old at the time of the movie, then the lateen mizzen would be quite right for the period. Also, she actually has sweeps , which several pirate ships really did, notably Kidd’s Adventure Galley and Edward England’s Fancy. And my favorite part is that her sails don’t look like taut 19th-century Napoleonic trapezoids which we see in almost all pirate movies because, well, it’s a much better design, but oversize billowy rectangles like the real early century ships had. Early century shipwrights had this idea that big baggy sails that caught more air thus provided more driving power, which is intuitively appealing but wrong.
