This is the 2013 prop I made for my pirates halloween. The sail had projections of a thunder storm, singing heads (to the tune of "yo oh a pirates life" and davey jones. A small motor turned the ships wheel back and forth.
Lol. The base of the wheel has 3 skull foggers on it (can't really see them well) that were set to go off every 10 seconds or so. This was a last minute addition that took me 2 hours (including shopping trip to lowes) to build. Next year I'll have a better wheel instead of my mountain bike rim.
