One man's fleet
Among Woodson's six converted pirate ships are a former 21-meter U.S. troop carrier and another 12-meter boat now lined with 18 bunk beds for school trips.
Once complete, each boat is advertised for sale on Craigslist, with the History Channel snapping up Gypsy Rose II for its TV series 'Ax Men,' which follows the history of timber cutters.
Other boats have been bought by cruise operators and restaurateurs.
"When I was building my first ship, people would say I was crazy," said Woodson.
"But five years, six boats, and probably 200 cruises-a-year later -- they're not telling me I'm crazy now."
