The Bow cannon deck.
Although she was built a cargo ship,she was armed with 8 12 pounder cannons, encase of pirates so she was given 2 cannon decks each one contained 4 cannons and could be manned by only 2 men to a cannon,cutting down costs and ships compliment.

The pole is named "bowsprit". 1) I don't like the blockiness and the inevitable exposed studs. It seems you tries to build a big MOC, but didn't have all the right pieces for it (mainly slopes and tiles). 2) There was nothing really new or innovative (except for the "side propulsion", as Deus called it). Nothing really clever or interesting, although it seems you've put a lot of effort into it. Sorry for the bluntness. 3) I usually don't find any use to normal bricks in MOCs except for the invisible support or walls. 4) Not your best, IMO. It's pretty much "quantity of quality". Not many details. Again, I'm sorry for being so blunt, but I want to be honest.
Hey Zac! I need you to see my Strategy Plan in the WT/CF Strategy Group, ok? Because I need yours and Dues' approval. Because Kyle Peckham likes my plan a lot. And so I need you to see it and see if we could use it! Its in the CF/WT Alliance Topic.Please reply to it!
That's a great ship, you've made her, Zac! With a really cool presentation, we can see every details you wanted to show us! I'm impressed!
No offending, but your vessel is more massive, and a bit blocky, for the original you wanted to represent.
With your turtle, you've once again made one of your best MOCs! ;-)
5, 5, and 5!!!
