That is how we came up with the name.

One of the other boats in our group was flying a pirate flag AND a beer flag. I commented that I wouldn't fly a beer flag, because it implies to other boaters that you're already drunk. Someone on the boat said "But we're flying a smiley face, that implies to other boaters that we're on ecstasy." And thus the name Jolly Molly was born.



Regarding the pirate flag: There were eight boats in our fleet, two of which flew a pirate flag. One was the boat we called the "old goats" since they're mostly retired and older than average. They flew the pirate and the beer flag. The other was the the only catamaran. It kind of seemed to fit the cat, but I'm not sure why the old goats flew it.

I even took my smiley face flag with me on a charter. We decided we're un-pirates and named the flag the Jolly Molly.

He will soon leave her high and dry once the credit card is maxed and move on to the next "girlfriend". You should be worried.

Break out the pirate flag and the cannon , keep you powder dry and blow him to kingdom come!

However in order to not be lame you should design your own Pirate flag (properly known as a signal).
Yeah, but he's a Plumber...which is almost as good as a doctor (which is what I wanted her to marry)

So far he's installed a new vent pipe for me and says he can get me the hook up on a slightly used "super flusher" toilet ...


So we'll have to play this one out a bit...

What's your point..?

Only a few growlers on the beach the night before. This was early AM and we were packing up our camp.

One time I was on a beer festival.. and I was drinking... and I was doing some really stupid things... And a police officer told me to move along.


Since then I've bought many pirate flags.

Learn from this and drink a lot

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Not sailing, but rafting once in our personal rig we got a serious talking-to by local law enforcement on the San Juan River. They nearly confiscated our numerous pirate flags we had flying from the grab line around the raft. Take from that what you will; personally I won't be flying them again.
