Buried at sea, or buried on land?

Oddly enough.. Buried on land. Creepy but I always thought it would be interesting to sleep with the bogs or mummified. One day they may find me and think I was the most common bodytype and assume all women were physically like me (hourglass, physical, short = 5'4", brunette, etc..). They'd never know my name but who knows what name they would come up with.

P.S. How'd I miss out on this one:

I'll sleep on deck....... she smells funny down below...

I do not smell funny down below and how would you know?!?! It's all my crew's fault. :angry:

Visit to a:

Maritime Museum or A Reenactment encampment/display?

The Company methinks... IF only fer the reason that afterwards, I can plunder their vessels of cargo, then scuttle their ship!

A day of unhindered plunderin' of merchant vessels.

The quartermaster's responsibility is to see that the crew has what they require and it is my job, as Captain, to see that the Quartermaster is doing his job. What better way to have him do his job then give him the opportunities.

Hmmmm.. Now let's see....

AH!!!

Job as a gunner or job as a Cabin Boy?

(both with their own form of risk.)
