They were using chain saws and tearing parts off with a Digger. I was told they were making her ready to tow somewhere for filming on Pirates 4 but it was not a careful operation it looked like a demo job.
Could someone possibly post the photo into the thread? I cant access that site from work!

Thanks!

A friend of mine heard that they will be replacing it with a set of one of the new ships from POTC 4....saw FD on Oct 29th and it was looking a little worse for wear!

Remember DCL never guarranteed how long the FD would be at CC and it is a movie set - not a display piece or an actual ship...it wasn't built to sit there for years on end.

We were on CC on 10/29/10 and my son overheard a CM saying that the Dutchman would be leaving soon for the filming of POTC4. I didn't think it was credible for a few reasons:
  1. I didn't read about it on the Disboards and we are usually better informed than the average CM.
  2. I thought they were likely well into filming POTC4 and if they were going to use it they would have taken it long ago.
  3. They are filming in Hawaii and the Dutchman didn't look seaworthy enough to make that trip.
Time will tell if that is the real reason.

I just got back from CC and I asked one of the castmembers about it when I was there. I was told the Flying Dutchman was being removed because its condition was deteriorating and that it is going to be replaced by the Black Pearl -- they didn't give any timing on the arrival of the Black Pearl, however.

My son is going to be so upset. We were booked for the Island Jet ski tour, sou we could get a closer look.

Now I will cancel that. Have to go home tonight and break the bad news to him.

I think DS would be more excited to see the Black Pearl than the Flying Dutchman. I hope that rumor is true.

We were there 4 days ago and the Flying Dutchman is still there, but moved to a different location. Just like the previous poster's photo, it is being docked next to Wonder's ship (opposite from the Dutchman's original location).

I can see it from my deck 6 cabin's window and there were several people working on the Dutchman ship. I did not see any removal or cutting, thing like that. The ship looks old and in bad shape, probably caused by sea salt air/water.

I asked the crew members on the ship and they're saying it's being refurshishment.

I hope the Dutchman is only being refurbished or that there'll be something else arriving to take her place.

There was no mention of any refurbishment and/or removal when we were there at the beginning of October, and I thought she looked in reasonable condition - at least from the shore.

I hope that it will either be refurbished or replaced by another Pirate ship. It always made great photos next to the Magic or Wonder.
