The build is 99% exact, I only had to rebuild the "trap" mechanism, which is non-functional (due to the absence of the "sprung" brick):

This set no. 6248 "Volcano Island," designed by Steen Sig Andersen, came out in 1996—arguably at the Pirate theme's peak. That same year, LEGO released an iconic set no. 6289 'Red Beard Runner' and launched the third installment of protagonists, Imperial Armada.

The build features a tiny deserted rocky island on the 8x16 baseplate, made of a grey BURP, with a treasure chest inside the cave. A massive stone skull that rotates on a peg acts as a gate; it's always been one of my favorite design elements of the Pirates theme in the '90s. Unlike its first appearance in set no. 6279 'Skull Island' in 1995, the Volcano Island's skull is asymmetrical (which I like even more!)

One of the most remarkable features is a trap: a "sprung" platform held in place by a tiny lever that sends the skeleton, a few ruby gems (or any objects) flying in the air to scare the enemies. As Part 2605c01 is absent, I staged my non-functional trap in the "released" mode.
