Purchasing a Sloop

>ask sales about buy sloop
The ship salesman says, "Sloops are single masted and are classified as a LIGHT ship.  They are faster than any ship on the sea.  We can outfit it with TWO cannons per side to start with a maximum of THREE.  It can't hold much in the cargo hold and the hull can't take much damage.  You can bring along up to TWO friends with you on this pup.  This is an excellent starting point for any aspiring captain!  This ship costs 5,000,000 silvers."

Clarence exclaims, "Congratulations on your purchase of a Sloop!"  The ship salesman loudly rings a bell sitting nearby.  He leans close and whispers, "Ask my twin outside about how to get your ship to a pier."
  The ship salesman pauses before continuing, "As part of tradition we have named your ship for you.  Henceforth, you are now the captain of the <name>!  If you don't like it you can visit the ship registrar and try your luck at another random name."
