For those would be pirates, a few points of character that you will need to adopt if you do not already have them now:
Never ever wash, you may live above the water
but swimming is for the fish
and those sent off the plank to Davey Joanses locker. The smell is a defensive measure to keep the royal navy
& everyone else away from their ship.
Curse and swear as much as possible. Just like I was doing two days ago trying to weld a Stainless rail outside in a 25knot southerly (booked the use of the dock
and power for the purpose).
To be a pirate Captain
, you have to have only one eye and a patch.
Long flowing beards with dreadlocks are also the go for captains, mere crew will walk the plank if they dare to copy the captain
