Another thing Cap'n, that pesky pirate puppet has been botherin' the bloody hell out of me about joining the crew. You know the one...Roberto Kaboom- killaa' of men and luvaa' of women. We call him" Kabob" for short after the incident in that Florida pub. Please stop this endless chattering!

Send us a bloody photo of the mate and we'll toss him onto the site. We don't want him chattering the night away and botherin' ya. It was a pleasure to meet him, and watch him die. Nice to know he's resurrected, Studley.

Great seeing you and Olaf in our waters. T'was a true pleasure. And we can't wait to voyage with the likes of you once again.

PS: I was mentioning to Julie at PiP about you and Olaf handling security at the fort during the festival's last weekend and encampment. What say you? I think Julie's willing to trade out for the camping privileges...

Ahoy Animal - bring the rum aboard and we'll have at it. If you can find yer way aboard, lad. Back from Key West. Captain Jacque Asse was there one night, that nefarious alter ego of Hurricane. He was rumsoaked, and drown while trying to board a ship dockside that was obviously (or obliviously) not his. Yer humble Captain Hurricane is back in charge.

Upcoming Voyages

Ahoy all!

For those of you who are new to the Pyrates of the Coast, we've been around under various names since 1990. We originally sailed the Puget Sound waters and moved our home port to just north of Orlando.

We go out 10 to 20 times a year, performing at festivals, doing community service appearances and just having a good time at local establishments. Ages range from Bullseye, the Cabin Boy, who's 6 to Water Rat who is 70+. Many of us have sailed together for 20+ years, others are new.

We have a pirate band that performs while the rest of the crewe roams the crowd, beading and stickering the civilians. We've performed throughout the world over the years -- Sail Boston, the Tall Ship Regatta, Mardi Gras -- in Roatan, Belize, Cozumel -- the list goes on.

Here's just a few of the things coming up -

July 20-24 - Hemingway Days Festival - The Pyrates of the Coast will be invading this annual ode to Papa which includes a lookalike contest, running of the bulls (sort of) and literary readings and events. We'll be hoisting a few flagons in honor of Mr. Hemingway's favorite past time while participating in the festivities.

Sept. 18-19 - The Pyrates of the Coast will be making their way to the Commencement Bay Maritime Fest, located along the Foss Waterway in Tacoma, WA. They'll be singing, beading, photo opportunities and carousing for those that meet up with us. Times to be determined.

Sept. 24-26 - The Pyrates will be raiding the St. Andrews Fall Seafood and Pirate Fest.

A seafood festival with a pirate twist along the bay in the historic St. Andrews, FL area on the St. Andrews Marina and the surrounding area. Travel by car or boat. Children's entertainment and activities.

Oct. 2 - The Pyrates will be performing at the Heindl and Laukshtein pirate wedding in Key West, at the West Martello Tower. This is a private event (obviously) but the crewe will also be supplying the piratical vows in addition to performing at the reception.

Oct. 30 - Halloween's on a Sunday this year (drats) so we'll be doing our usual havoc in the greater Orlando area at our favorite haunts. Hint: We'll be the ones in the pirate costumes.

Nov. 19-21 - The Pyrates will be pillaging and plundering the 2nd Annual Central Florida Pirate Festival, November 19, 20 and 21 at Coachman Park in Clearwater. Check out the festival at it unfolds at piratefair.com.

Nov. 25-Dec. 5 - Pirates in Paradise Festival, Key West. Hurricane, Sloe Gin, Dreamboat Annie, Bullseye, Sir Nigel, Diosa and Lighthouse will return to this annual gathering of piracy. We'll be appearing all over town again, doing stage shows, story times, visits to local retirement homes, a beach cleaning, kid's day at Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum, Captain Tony's, the schooner Wolf, sea battles and the pub run. We'll also be posing for a bajillion photos with touristas. If you can only make on pirate event in your life, this is the one! See photos from our 2003 escapades on our site at http://www.piratesofthecoast.com.

I heard about that unfortunate episode with Jacque Asse. In hindsight I think it would have been better to lead him away from the drink into the way into it. I think the latter was his ultimate downfall. Hate those sissy pirates who can't handle their rum...

The crewe has guffawed extensively at the Tender Weapons Tender. You're stuck with it lass. Make no mistake - the Pyrates of the Coast be the funnest, hardieast, uhh, heartiest cut throats to sail the seven seas (as well as a bunch of lakes in Portlando)... do not be swayed by others showing their coin or stout rigging... do not be cottled by their wiles. Stay true lass and you will be rewarded with bunnies galore.

Consider yerself reinstated to Quartermaster, mate. Glad to see you've signed the articles once again.... How's the ship's doctor coming along with medikal skool. I hear she did well on the amputation test... Got an F I'm told which I assume stands for Fine... The crewe is looking forward to having a bonafide medicine woman aboard to treat the less than social diseases that are running amok on the Blackheart...
