Well, a lifelong dream of full self-employment doing yacht rigging and diving is finally underway for me this year. I have big hopes for 2010 and bigger plans for years coming. Part of this is Buccaneer Ropeworks a company devoted to traditional rigging, custom fancywork, and other products of general pirate-y interest. Pictured below are a handful of items currently for sale as well as samples of the sort of work that I do. I'm currently working on a line of knotted bottles as well as some voodoo themed items inspired by the book, "On Stranger Tides". I also stock a variety of sizes of manila 3-strand at very competitive prices as well as sewing palms, real sail needles (WM Smith, available in tubes or individually), modern fids, and other maritime tools. Please PM me if you are interested in prices or having work done. All orders will be handled promptly. Shown is an assortment of brooms, needle-cases, a bottle, a small voodoo doll (available with pins and a burlap bag to hold everything), and a sample of custom work - this being the handle of an anchor windlass.

Her reputation was her livelihood.

I'm a pirate, love. By nature and by choice!

My inner voice sometimes has an accent!

My wont? A delicious rip in time...

A cat I can certainly do. Will get a pic up in a day or two.
