Pirate of Pine Island dismasted and nearly sunk!
Thanks for sharing you pirate''s tale with us. Don''t you think that the gods were angry that a pirate such as yourself was spending time in a dandy marina like Burnt Store? Their vengeance was probably intended to take your boat and your lives, so you beat ''em pretty good, I''d say.
We''ll be joining you down in Charlotte Harbor next year. I''ll be sure to have some fine rum on board - for a fellow sailor or as pirate tribute, depending on how we get on.
I''m guessing there''ll be a marked decline in plundering and pillaging until you get your vessel sound again. And, yes, you had a much more interesting weekend than I did.
