There’s A Pirate Museum In Delaware And It Looks As Amazing As It Sounds
Did you know that there’s a Pirate Museum in Delaware? Yes, right in the town of Bowers Beach, you’ll find one of the most fascinating museum in the First State. Check it out on a day trip, or set aside time Memorial Day Weekend to visit for their Pirate Festival, the Buccaneer Bash!

The Bowers Beach Maritime Museum is located at 3357 Main Street, in Bowers Beach/Frederica.

Too dark to see.

As long as that is my ship!

Real broadsides would either be in unison or roll down the deck "as she bares" at the start and the rate of reload is at best 4 shots in 5 minutes under optimal conditions with no fire being returned (e.g. practice)

Aye I do, any day of the week. Take what ye can! Capnbmo Dapirate

I’m in, but we really need to up our firepower.

yes

Yep!

That's why it was called learning the ropes

They left out the lubber's hole.

Everything there has a purpose. Wind power moved tons of ship with cargo across oceans. Capturing all the power of the wind in the sheets had to be transferred to the hull. Wood for compression and rope/lines for tension. Seems overkill on the engineering until you factor in gails during hurricane.

ha ha I have to make a model one of these today for a stage set. Thank you for posting! Er! On second thought think I will give it a miss! Too hard. It will have to be too high to be seen!

Where did this diagram come from?

Just saw it recently, I found it to be delightful! stardust.app.link/nFQQjTKfcM

Great movie

Errol Flynn was the " hearthrob" ,but everyone knows that Basil Rathbone was the superior actor.

Best pirate movie! We love it at Strangebeard.

Fantastic movie!

I thought Zorro the Gay Blade put the swash into swashbuckler. Or was that swish?

Ratlines are part of the shrouds, together, some sailors referred to them as a "Stairway to Heaven" .

I thought they were called 'ratlines'?
