Is flying a pirate flag lame?
 
Hey guys and gals,

I'm new to sailing. Is it considered lame to fly a pirate flag up on my shrouds or stays? Just a small one? :)

Thanks
RG

You'd get more of a consensus asking about US politics or MAC vs PC. :eek:

A couple of recent threads containing a lot of talk and opinions about flags:

It's OK if you have a cannon.

Hell, anything's OK if you've got a cannon.

Haha

Things to buy:

1. Cannon!

It's crazy reading what people write here "If I saw a pirate flag I'd fire on them!" .... Are you guys nuts? Good thing I (will be) sail on lakes!

lame?
 
Lame? No, it is a statement of your state of mind at the time. Just be ready to share the rum to any and all boarders.

It is your boat, do whatever you want. :).

But as for me, I wouldn't unless I have compelling story to tell the world. Likewise, I wouldn't put bumper stickers on my car either.

Oh Yeah! Or worse.

Real pirates don't fly the Jolly Roger, so you ought to be ok.

Regards,

Other than the fact that pirates rape, pillage, and have lousy hygiene (except in the movies), no, there's nothing wrong with showing your support ;)

Flying the Jolly Roger is OK only if you have a large crew of scantily clad busty wenches.
