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.

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'?

He was not the first. The first was Juan Sebastian Elcano.

Seems like the story was cut short.

Must be one of those TV "snippets"

What is going on here?!?! I am the first sailing around the world!!!!!

At the exact moment where I needed a great laugh, the BBC comes to the rescue!

I'm not sure what that was, but I did get a good laugh. Thank you for posting.

Funniest prog on TV for years !

This was tongue in cheek funny, right ?

I believe circumnavigate is the word they are looking for....

first ship to circumcise the globe?????? I DONT THINK SO!

I think she stopped off at the pub before work

The media up to it's usual standard.

Holy crap! where did they find her? 😂😂😂

Golden Hind = Arse of Gold. Priceless 😂😂😂

OMG>>>what a gaff!!!

But I thought it was "Mother" earth!

Show some respect people ... He boiled for you !!

Can no longer do pirate cosplay.

The flying spaghetti..

Now i love piracy and all things pirate. Even as you see to the extent that i started a pirate themed barber shop. Also currently smashing Sea of thieves, and gone back to finish AC Blackflag.... However I'm really left scratching my head trying to figure out where the notion came that piracy and a flying spaghetti have something in common 🤣. Never seen anything about any pirate captain in the history books wearing a colander on his head (as much as feather installation would be easy as). But i would also imagine being a colander and having many holes, it'd let alot of rain through. My last major struggle is that if the flying spaghetti monster was actually a thing and pirates believed in that. Then how in 1000 porcelain palaces worth of shitty experiences did i end up gluten intolerant???

10 IDEAS FOR SCURVY DOGS 💀 1. Last Supper will be Spaghetti and Rum 2. Turn the other cheek will lead to Plank Walking 3. The GOLDEN rule can only be found in a Bounty 4. The Sermon on the Mount was held in Nassau 5. Eve was a Wench. Anne Bonny was a real Pirate Girl 6. The Code IS The Ten Commandments. 7. Wage inequality does not exist 8. Queen Ann's Revenage was faster than the Ark! 9. Krakens be welcomed as chosen ones 10. Laughter and Rum is not better medicine. It Be BEST Medicine 😁😉
