SLIDESHOW | 'Pirates of the Caribbean' fan builds replica of pirate ship in backyard

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's a pirate's life for one movie fan, and to sail the high seas, he just has to go to his yard.

Steven Hill loved the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise so much, he built a replica of a pirate ship in the back yard of his Arizona home. The vessel stands 50 feet tall -- and comes decked out with a jail, captain's quarters, fake cannons, and even a crow's nest. 

He says he made it for kids in the community to enjoy. 

"Does your wife think you're a little crazy?" asked one reporter.

"Yeah, I'm way beyond crazy," replied Hill.


Building skills must run in the family. Hill's grandfather built the original Disneyland Castle for Walt Disney.
