  1. The Pyracy Pub is Closing!

    Aye. With the loss of Fort Taylor Pirate Invasion and now the Pyracy Pub, it has been a bad year or two for pirates. So many fond memories. So long old friend... mP

  6. Review of Black Sails pilot

    I bought season 3 on eBay almost a month ago. Season 3 is another another quality production (altho season two was slightly better IMHO). The development of the characters and plot continues. I read a review online criticizing the writers for killing off a character because that character was his favorite, and a major reason people watch the series. Never once did the reviewer acknowledge that history was the basis for the production... DUH! I guess he will be disappointed when Season 4 is the last. Why would they do that? LOL mP
  7. The Traveling Pyrate

    The trick is finding the right duffel. Airline restrictions are usually L+W+H <= 62 inches. This might cause you grief (I assume you truly meant circumference and not diameter Mickey) I found duffel bags ~$20 pretty easily, that are 12in diameter by 35in long or 35+12+12 = 59. so its pretty close to max size mP

  10. introduction Ahoy, this be an introduction

    Welcome aboard wascopirate!. I know the Kern County boys well. Were you by chance at the last Dana Pt Festival with them? Alas the days of busy interaction on the Pub seem to be at an end, mostly due to facebook. This is an excellent site for reference however. You can still ask questions and get answers, altho it may take a while to get answers. I'm sure our paths will cross, if they haven't already... mP
  11. Upcoming Acts of Pyracy

    William -you need to get set up with a traveling tent of some sort. It's not a stretch to fit a wedge tent, stakes, ropes, and cot (all wrapped in a wool blanket) into a zippered duffel that gets checked on plane. Under 50# and no big deal. An oar tent is even lighter and easier. I recently added poles that screw together and fit in the bag as well. Pm me and I'll give the details. Clothes fit in a carry-on and/or a backpack. I was gonna say it doesn't quite fit in a seabag, but if one made a seabag the same size as the duffel it just might... mP

  13. Upcoming Acts of Pyracy

    Dana Point Ocean Institute puts on a great event the 2nd weekend of September each year, in conjunction with the Toshiba tall ships festival. The tall ships travel up and down the California coast and offer tours and sails. The waterfront is packed with pirates and pirate loving public, vendors and a pirate camp. There is a British Naval unit that mans the Brig Pilgrim and each year the Pirates row in to take over the ship 3 times a day for the public. There is a good showing of pirates of an Historical nature, and shooting of cannons and flintlocks off the pier. http://www.ocean-institute.org/tall-ships-festival mP
