Captain Bill's Ship Building

The ship shop was recently torn down. Some average, normal, "nothing special" buildings are going up in its place. Very sad.

The pirate ship building offers an authentic appearance of sea-worthiness on the side facing the parking lot. For all your pirate shopping needs.
