Pirates
Managed By: Icon Here The Sea Rats
Description:
Yo ho, me scurvy dogs!
We be looking for waymarking treasures that would shiver the timbers of the true buccaneer. Our plunder includes historic pirate sites, museum exhibits, ports and other booty significant to pirate history and the buccaneers of legend and lore.
Expanded Description:
Fifteen men on a dead man's chest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum...

Their names were Blackbeard and Barbarossa, Calico Jack and Captain Kidd - names that struck fear into the hearts of seamen and sea merchants. The scourge of the seas were they.
From ancient sea raiders to the Vikings to the pirates of the Golden Age, these sea-faring brigands have been around as long as the oceans have been used as trade routes. Although greatly romanticized by cinema and literature, these Barbary pirates, Buccaneers of the Carribean, and raiders of the Spanish Main plied their trade through kidnapping, murder, slavery, and pillaging.

Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum...

We'd like to see waymarks of interest to the serious pirate history enthusiast. We welcome historic pirate sites, museum exhibits and public displays, legendary treasure sites, shipwrecks, pirate ports-of-call, graves, hideouts and any other treasures of interest to the study of the Brethren of the Coast.
We like to hear names like Blackbeard, Black Bart, Anne Bonney, Mary Read, Black Sam Bellamy, Henry Morgan, Jean Lafitte, and many others who shared their infamy.
And although the Golden Age of Piracy ended in the early 1700's, river pirates continued the Sweet Trade into inland waters where they terrorized and raised havoc with river merchants until the mid-1800's so we be paying them respects as well. Arrrgh!

With a Yo-Heave-Ho! and a fare-you-well
And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell
Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell,
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.
