New Pirate Ship Launched

Country Leisure Fibreglass have added a NEW pirate ship to our range of childrens pool features.

The new design features a more authentic galleon shape and is themed throughout with an aged timber effect.

Following prepared drawings and sketches timber patterns were created by our skilled pattern makers for the front, centre and rear sections of the ship. The front of the ship was particularly challenging due to the profile and was formed by soaking and steaming the timber so it could be bent into shape.

After the body or hull was formed, the timber was carefully burnt using a blow torch to exaggerate the wood grain.

Once each pattern was complete a mould was taken off which unavoidably destroys the temporary timber pattern in the process.

A releasing agent was then applied to each of the new factory moulds to assist removal at a later stage and before the glass reinforced polyester was applied using a combination of spraying and hand laying techniques.

Once cured the three separate sections of the ship were released from the moulds and the edges trimmed.
The sections were then moved into one of our finishing workshops and assembled together where they could be worked on by hand to completion, adding in features such as the deck, slides, steps, cannons and masts, etc.

The completed ship was then finished off with specialist theming and decoration.

In this particular case the ship was then split into six sections and broken down with each section suitably reinforced and flanged to enable it to be bolted together again when delivered to site. This method makes transportation and access into buildings easier.

All mechanical fixings used are A4 grade stainless steel and suitable for a swimming pool and wet leisure environment.

The new ship has a variety of water sprays and features and is currently available in two models.
Options also exist to add sound and light effects (Subject to installation).
