Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

I am of the opinion that those who like flying a pirate flag (and let's be honest we are talking about it from a novelty aspect, NOT if you are a Somalian with an AR 15) are live and let live kind of people...

But I am not sure with what to say the "They are lame" folks are?

In who's opinion? Yours, or your uncles? Highlight the word "opinion".

hmmm, is this proof that people with pirate flags always are bad sailors... or does it prove that people with pirate flags are the only bad sailors.

I am a past member of the USCGA and I also only flew the national ensign and USGGA ensign on my personal boat and when on patrol the USCGA Operational ensign. When on a chartering vacation in the BVI, I fly the following:



and when at a mooring for the evening:



Call me lame but we sure are having a heck of a good time!

That's the only color they sell at the concession stand. $10, reasonably priced compared to some of the concert T-shirts I've purchased in the past.

I must say that reading 64 pages of "deep and meaningful dialogue" is a good cure for insomnia.
With the exception of flying your colours (national flag) respectfully, I doubt if the flag police will board your ship, pull the buttons off your tunic, break your sword and banish you from the marina.
Worrying about what others think about you is in of itself lame.
