Your best bet is to check out this site https://playmodb.org/

Check off the Pirate box in the "List sets from any theme or themes" section

Then hit "List" button (This will show a list of all items with their set numbers that have been tagged to this theme"

Then hit "Show Pictures" (this will then show the uplaoded photo of the sets in question)

You can then browse the list. It may not show all versions of the set (i.e the different box art work)

For uploading images try using https://imgur.com/ and remember when you go to upload the picture url into your post you need to hit the  insert image function and then place the URL between the ]insert URL here[ . you can also type [ img ] example no spaces [ /img ]

You can also use the "Focus:" dropdown to limit the list to vehicles (also try "Combination", there are still a few of those though I'm weeding them out), and the "Sort by:" dropdown to sort by release date, if that helps.

Regarding the playmodb site, is it possible to drop the minimum word length to 3 characters? It makes looking for things like cap and hat difficult.

Try putting a comma after the word, so "cap," or "hat," This will pick up some hits like "hat, deerstalker-style". Or you could try "hat with" I have never found anything else works for 3-letter search terms, unless there is some arcane wild card character you can use, Heather?
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

No, 4 characters is the limit, and my programming skills are not up to fancy searches. Sorry! But if you're getting that generic, you could look in categories, e.g. PlaymoDB Part Categories - Wearable (Headwear,Soft).
