Liana's Ransom is from Halifax, Nova Scotia. The ship is dedicated to entertainment and earns her living in the British Virgin Islands.
Capt. Joe Tilley - Liana's Ransom
"In the Caribbean we are a pirate ship. When we are in Halifax we are a privateer. For this summer we are a Royal Navy schooner from the War of 1812."
Tilley is not only the captain, but the owner of the Liana's Ransom.
"It was all friends and family we did all the work ourselves. We are fitted out as a privateer schooner, that's why the masts are rake aft and it's a gaff rigged top sail, very typical of the privateer schooners of the time."
