    Close quarter sea battles, boarding parties, plunder, pillage, and burning. Sacking New World Settlements and outposts. General Mayhem. A fair day with a good breeze, full sail to a safe anchorage. A good meal with all night in save a soft anchor watch. Aye! That be the Life!
  1. Any Real Sailors

    Aye, Sir, and we shall. Capt Slocum was making such good time and "SPRAY" was self steering so steady that he sailed past the Marquesas! I think he was anxious to get to Samoa to meet Robert Louis Stevenson. Of course he made Samoa quite soon after the passing of the "Great Story Teller", His Samoan Name. Our passage from Panama to Nuka Hiva, Marquesas, was 28 days. At that time a fast crossing. Our best days run was 238 miles! A Glorious Day at Sea! We spent 30 days in the Marquesas, a whole other volume, then made for Hawaii. 18 days with some rough weather at the Equatorials, then Doldrums, the rough again then back to "Pacific". Two Days, two whole days away from Hawaii, we saw the peaks of Moana Loa and Moana Kea above the clouds that stack up against the Islands! This trip was a dream of mine since I was a boy. I was ridiculed for thinking that I would go from sailing my prams and skiffs in Long Island Sound to sailing to the Caribbean, forget the South Pacific. Well, I don't know what their dreams were, I hope they met them, for I have lived several of mine! Yes Sir, Mr Bottles. I know that "Baby Bottles" on the way will be encouraged to follow their dream. With that I will say Congradulations on your wonderful Good News and bid you Adeui!

  3. Ship's Bell with new Bell Rope.

    From the album Crewe of the "Meka"II

    New Bell Rope made by Bosun Dutch. Half Hour Glass is fitted at the Binnacle with the small bell. Each half hour chime is answered from the helm and officer of the watch by the lookout forward. The Bellfry is abaft the fore mast. On larger vessels the Bellfry is usually abaft or before the windlass.

  4. "Meka"'s Bow Chaser.

    From the album Crewe of the "Meka"II

    For those we pursue, those broad, fat and loose in stays. Those low with goods or gold. Press on what ye will for sail for this be what sights your rudder first! We be small in tonne but vast in sail. Ye will feel our iron. Best action, lower colorss, heave to, give oer' and be set free. Do it not to thy own peril!

  5. The Floggings Will Continue Until The Moral Improves!

    From the album Crewe of the "Meka"II

    Capt. Sinbad. Ready to emphisize a point! This is what the Bumper Stickers, T-Shirts and Cute Buttons are referring to. An Officer that spares the lash will have a crew slow to respond. Unacceptable in Battle. Whether the Dozen or "Moses' Law" or at worse, a Flogging Around the Fleet, discipline must be of first order.

  7. "The Sword of Tortuga"

    The "Sword of Tortuga" is a novel written by our own fearless leader, Capt. Horatio Sinbad.

The book is available from our website, www.pirate-privateer.com along with a DVD on the building of the "Meka"II titled, "Boatbuilding in Your Own Backyard" or "How to Lose Friends and Provoke Others". Check it out!
