Pirate Captain and Spanish soldiers[src] (pre-2006 revamp)

The Wicked Wench was a pirate ship which sailed in the Caribbean Sea in the early 18th century. Under the command of the notorious Pirate Captain, she attacked the Spanish port of Puerto Dorado on Isla Tesoro.[1]

History

PirateCaptain Ride

A pirate captain aboard the Wicked Wench.

It is unknown how the Pirate Captain acquired the Wench. Some details of her hull and rigging imply that she was a Spanish vessel[3] before she was captured by pirates and converted into a pirate ship.

At some point during the first half of the 18th century, the Wicked Wench sailed for Isla Tesoro, where her pirate crew attacked the Spanish town of Puerto Dorado. Though the Spanish soldiers managed to break the Wench's fore-mast with their cannon fire, the pirates succesfully invaded the town and captured its magistrate, Carlos.[1]

Design and appearance

The Wicked Wench was a three-masted galleon. Her hull was painted red and black while her stern was decorated in crimson-red and gold colors. Her armament was composed of 18 cannons. Her firepower was strong enough to damage a stone fortress and allow her pirate crew to invade an unsuspecting town.
