    UK Boy Exposes Fake Black Pearl

    The HMS Bounty, a three-masted sailing ship touted as "The Black Pearl" in an English press release, gets busted by a 12 year old English boy who knows his Pirates of the Caribbean. The ship has been touring England as part of an exhibit sponsored by European Maritime Events.

    Having seen the pirate films dozens of times, he immediately realised the deck and cabins were not the same as those on the movie ship.

    He challenged the ship's 'crew' - who admitted it had never been used as The Black Pearl, which was actually a floating set made of plywood mounted on a barge.

    Organisers of the UK tour have now admitted that it only made a brief appearance in the second and third films of the series - in the background as The Edinburgh Trader.
