Thumbs up Piracy

The easiest one yet.

Three buccaneers, taking part in the profession they love and each having a disability from previous encounters, set sail yet again in search of treasure, each in a different direction, but to their dismay, get marooned for a long period of time. How and when they were rescued is not known.

The buccaneers are Captain Stump, Grey Beard, and Mean Mike.

The disabilities are loss of an eye, loss of a hand, and loss of a leg,

The ships are Big Bess, Merry Rose, and Saucy Sue.

The years marooned are 3, 4, and 5.

The buccaneers, disabilities, ships, and years marooned do not necessarily relate to each other in the order listed.

From this information and the following clues, for each buccaneer, can you determine his disability, the name of his ship and how many years he spent marooned?

1) The buccaneer with only one eye spent the longest time marooned but is not Mean Mike.
2) Big Bess is the ship of Grey Beard.
3) The Saucy Sue is the ship of the buccaneer with only one leg who spent least time marooned but who is not Captain Stump.
4) The buccaneer with only one hand is the captain of the Merry Rose.

That's what the numbers in front of each are for.

3 years - Saucy Sue - Mean Mike - missing leg
4 years - Merry Rose - Captain Stump - missing hand
5 years - Big Bess - Grey Beard - missing eye
