Pirate's Little Dinghy That Could

This modern day pirate propels his vessel with a dinghy of his own design and 15 HP outboard. He built the boat/dinghy in his backyard over three years after work and on weekends using Bueller's Backyard Boatbuilding (sic?) Arriving one morning to Princess Anne after crossing the Chesapeake without sails (which were not quite finished) he said he didn't want to have to pay property taxes or registration to the state of Maryland, and with no motor his 41 footer is exempt! One might argue the aesthetics of the stained plywood, but she is sturdy. Oh, his last one was 60 feet. His anchor was one of those old fashioned hook shaped types, about four feet tall.
