While scouring the Caribbean for your prey, you’ll come across a wide variety of goods, sundries and weapons. Hidden treasure, looting ships and bodies, and good old fashioned trading will all net you more items than you can carry. Luckily, you can upgrade your ship’s cargo hold, hire less crew to provide you with more room, or trade at the various ports and islands, being sure to make use of the local economies, buying low and selling high. There are many types of merchants and traders in the Caribbean, and you’re sure to find one to buy your goods, no matter what they are. Bigger ships have bigger cargo holds, so make use of your ill-gotten gains and buy a larger (and more powerful) ship as soon as possible.
