This is a 1.25:1 Minecraft model of the USS Petrel, a small gunboat used extensively in the Spanish-American War of 1898. This boat served alongside the more famous USS Olympia during the Battle of Manila Bay on May 1st, 1898. Affectionately dubbed "The Baby Battleship" by the Asiatic Squadron, this boat had an excessive armament for its size, packing four 6" naval guns, two 3lber naval guns, 2 gatling guns, two revolving 37mm guns, and one 1lber rapid-fire gun.

The Petrel had a crew or 112 sailors and 10 officers. Between 1898 and 1901, four of her crew members obtained the Medal of Honor.

Hey, nice little boat. Too bad you can not build a decent Rigging in Minecraft. I just read that you still build a bigger ship, which is it ?

I also do just a an older ship, but it will not post here, this is your Category :)

The hull has too many straight lines, try to keep the lines angled towards the stern or bow of the ship
