Shot Notes

This ship is the Notorious. It is a replica of a fifteenth century Portuguese caravel made from reclaimed Monterey Cypress. Caravels were favored by pirates for their speed, agility and large holds. This one was designed and built by Captain Graeme Wylie over 11 years in Victoria. He now sails around the coast of Australia with his wife Felicite. We met them both this weekend, as they stopped on the Gold Coast on their way down to Sydney.

    It looks like something out of “Pirates of the Caribbean” outside. In fact I think they were interested in using it for the next film. It was surrounded by fancy yachts in the marina when I saw it, so I chose an internal shot. The owners have photos of it on the open water on the Notorious facebook page.
