A Sheet to the Wind

A Sheet to the Wind

"What do you do with a drunken sailor", a sea shanty that comes to mind as pirates in a recently captured prize flounder among Caribbean shoals, sampling the alcohol discovered among the stores found in the hold. The rovers are not seriously drunk, yet - for they are not quite "two sheets to the wind".

Farewell

Farewell

Pirates were notorious for swapping vessels. They left garbage rotting aboard, and ignored ship's cleanliness, except for the exterior hull, since barnacles and seaweed impaired their speed. As the smell and the squalor mounted, or when the bottom became too foul, a new prize became their refit, and their abused discards were destroyed.

Narrow Escape

Narrow Escape

Sometimes flight is wiser than fight. Approaching darkness provides opportunity to escape and lick ones wounds as long as rudder, masts, yards, sails and rigging can survive a dash to safety till darkness falls. An encounter at sea was an unknown factor, a vessel might be friend or foe, or foe pretending to be friend.

Successful Return

Successful Return

Hidden coves and inlets in the Bahamas gave shallow draft vessels escape and safe harbor to lay up with stolen goods scoured from nearby shipping lanes. Sea rover communities established throughout the Caribbean, and beyond, allowed rogues to spend, trade, gamble, drink, and whore away their ill gotten booty.

Wreck of the Whydah

Wreck of the Whydah

Originally a slave trading vessel, the ship rigged galley, Whydah, was captured in the Bahamas by pirate Black Sam Bellamy. The hold contained gold silver, ivory, sugar, indigo and rum, and perhaps, a ruby the size of a hen's egg. A cruise northward, plundering ships, ended in the spring of 1717, when, laden with treasure, she broke up on a lee shore during a storm off Cape Cod.
