New York Man Built His Daughter A 50-Foot Pirate Ship
This dad (Father of the Year) built his daughter a 50-foot pirate ship for Halloween.
Tony DeMatteo of New York says that he has no background in ship-building, but enjoys the excitement his decorations bring to his children.
Inspired by his daughter’s request for a “Pirates of the Caribbean” display a few years back (which he obliged to with a small ship), DeMatteo revealed a 50-foot pirate ship in time for Halloween.
According to DeMatteo, the ship cost about $3,000 to make and used second-hand material and hand-made props.
Visitors who wanted to marvel at the display were encouraged to bring canned goods and other donations for people in the community.
