Not a thing, same with gaff rigs, wooden spars, wooden hull, bow sprits, iron keels and running back stays. I love character, just don't want to own it anymore. Good luck with the 3 strand.

I'm sorry, you're still not making any sense. I expressed a strong opinion that I disapprove of private vessels flying cheesy pirate flags. You apparently disagree with that opinion, but how does that make me a "follower"?

(you have one more chance to express yourself clearly and logically, then I'm giving up)

MY Jolly Roger is not cheesy. You don't believe me, come try to take it down.

I am not losing any sleep over your opinion. Normaly, those of you who cast stones and call others names are only simple minded folks. Have been led to the conclusion that someone cares what you think.

No more than you care what I think.

I understand and share those sentiments. I was just curious what this dude was trying to say with the "follower" thing. Simple curiosity.

Re: Jolly Roger, Pirates and Political Correctness

I hadn't given this much thought. I've flown the pyrat flag. Pyrat rum that is. I thought it was interesting reading.

I saw that one... and Aieta(?spelling) and Neil Simons/ Last of the Red Hot Lovers at a theater in Wake Forest once upon a time..oh yeah saw West Side Story also..gotta love the preforming arts. Thanks for the reminder...although I didnt know about G&S being the originators of the J.R...I think the Queen Annes Revenge flew a devil and a sword or to be correct a Cutless..or a big knife..I fancy the big knife...yeah it was a big Knife..Actually it was a spear and a heart with bloody drops..Im almost sure,I think..
