When a player approaches the SmallGalleon, four Pirates will spawn. These pirates are capable of dropping boats into the water and attacking before you enter the ship, but their location inside the ship may prevent it.
The ship consists of a main deck with a mast ladder up to the crow's nest, an upper deck over the rear cabin, and a hold below. There are pirates in the crow's nest, the upper deck, the rear cabin, and the hold.
The SmallGalleon contains no chests, but there is an enchanting table surrounded by 33 bookshelves in the hold.
