Sailing Again!

"Key Lime" on a reach!



This year my 16 foot Shearwater, "Key Lime" was part of the Beaufort Pirate Invasion. We rowed upon the Town using great stealth and demanded surrender! We were met with Jests and Jeers. So I brandished my 50 cal. Pistol to fire a warning shot but it misfired! I then brandished my 38 cal. Cloak Pistol which did fire but did not seem to frighten the Town any. They returned fire with one of their Cannon at which we beat an hasty reatreat!
As we cleared the point where the Town could no longer see us the joke was on longer on us for here was our Bretheren in Arms the Pirate Fleet we had sailed out to represent in a Parlay! A suit for surrender. Their answer was clear, face it now for it bears neigh!
I'm going sailing now, Ahoy!
