Rickety's Squibs is a village at the mouth of a nameless river on the Slithering Coast in the Shackles's mainland. The village is concealed from passing ships by a protruding headland and is difficult to find if one doesn't know where to look.
Rickety's Squibs refits and modifies the lines and profiles of ships providing a new identity for a price. These rebuilt vessels are referred to as "squibs." Its facilities are hidden within the jungle. Rickety's Squibs is run by old Rickety Hake, a retired pirate and former mate of the Bearded Whore, captained by Ella Gurnett who was killed at the battle of Nolis Point.1
