That poor thing is not going anywhere but the scrap heap. It got too deteriorated so there wasn't much that could be done other than dismantling/destroying it. It's been interesting watching it get more and more run down over the years. I sort of suspected something like this would be happening soon. We were on the cruise right before the destruction started, and I didn't find out what would be happening until we left the island. A shame as I would have grabbed one last photo had I known.

Are you asking where the Pearl is? On 10/20 she was still in Ko Olina Marina on Oahu.

I was so looking forward to seeing a third ship from POTC next year. I've been on the Lady Washington that was The Interceptor in the first movie. And saw the Pearl last month. But, now the Dutchman is gone.

Unless they are making a new Black Pearl for Castaway Cay me ship doesnt exist anymore ...When they took the Black Pearl out of Ensenada and sailed it to Hawaii for filming , they pulled her out of the water and transformed into Black Beards ship the "Queen Anns Revenge" . they completey remodeled the ship even selling of the lovely lady that rode the bow of the Black Pearl .... So again it seems highly unlikely that it will be the Black Pearl unless they are making a new one ....



**** The Picture above is a picture of "Queen Ann's Revenge" it is no longer the Black Pearl ..**** Sad to see me ship gone

I think that picture looks more like the flying Dutchman just with out the barnacles all over the hull. If you remember towards the end of the last movie when it come back from the depths with Will at it's helm the Barnacles are gone and also her crew is human as they have a Capitan that will do his job. The reason the ship and crew looked the way they did is because Davey Jones was not doing his job.

This is the last pic I guess I will ever take of the Flying Dutchman.....I snapped this from the Tram on the way back to the ship on the Halloween cruise and it is easy to see she is not sitting right...poor thing. She will be missed.

Oh no .. what a shame. As a massive fan of the movies and everything POTC I am gutted that the Flying Dutchman has been sent to Davy Jones Locker for one last time I will really miss her in Castaway Cay

I saw her for the last time then in October:

I have been on the Edinburgh Trader from the second movie ( aka The Bounty ). It was such a thrill to be on one of the ships.

I think the reason that she was not sitting right, is that she was sitting on a samdbar. When I firs saw her several years ago, she was totally free floating, pretty much all the time. At some point, either the sand built up under her, or DCL did it deliberately, but either way for the most part, she was sitting on sand, and one side may have washed out more then the other, giving her the appearance that she was listing to one side.

You can see in this pic, the sand that is built up under her, and compared to the pic where she is floating next to the pier, she is flaoting on an even keel.

I mean, here's this awesome, clean, beautiful space ....and there sat the ugly shell of a movie prop.

I'd been to Castaway Cay before it got there, and have been several times since it was there, and I like it better without.

Sorry....just my opinion.
No...I didn't care much for it either.

I liked seeing the prop ship but I also missed being able to take pictures of the Woner and the Magic without having it in the pictures.

We just got back from our Magic cruise and have pictures of the bulldozers and cranes tearing the FD apart. From what we were told by multiple cast/crew members is that she was infested with bugs and sea life. It was a terrible expense to try and gut her and clean her up. So, they tore her down completely. They do not have anything to replace her with yet. Was sad to see them tearing her down. We did a double dip and the first time at CC they were litterally gutting her. When we got back a couple days later, it was just the hull and everything else was in a big pile. CRAZY

Why wouldn't they sell pieces of the scrap to us as souvenirs so they can recoup the costs of tearing it down? I'd buy a small chunk. Then again, I also bought a chunk of coal from the Titanic
