Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

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.

The question was asked and 624 replies later it is still being discussed. Don't you guys have a bottom to paint or brightwork to do?

The BVIs were indeed the stomping grounds of real pirates in the day. Blackbeard among them.

While I'm sure there have been a few JRs around, I can't say I've ever noticed one to consider them required.
