Socks don't yer mean Stocks

Stocks well I as one fer me wench if she burns me stew.
One fer each of me crew on a rota system loike.
One fer me enemies, at the end of me plank.
One fer blaggards loike yer cos you can't spell.

Now stop bothering me I as a crew ter flog afore Supper ternite.
The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Dere be no more provisions fer em sews they be drooling evry toime they see me. I must catch more seafood effin eyes wants to stay aboard.

Eyes had no contact wiff any udder ships nor the mates dat signed on wiff me. Tis lonely here sumtoimes (effin not fer the rats)
Eyes be hearing thru the ether dat new recruits ave signed on ,as well as cabin boyz ,buts cooking fer rats 'ave kep me frum sending up a signal.

Oi's jest receeved wind o' a long lost parchment hentitled
'Ow Ter Run Yer Ship - A Cap'ns Guide', 1752, Bills and Boom.

It wer 3/6d but Oi got site o' a chapter fer free.

Chapter 8.

Deployin Yer Crew.


a) Line yer crew hup in the followin' order left ter roight.

Cap'n - First Mate - Second Mate - Third Mate - Fourth Mate - Fifth Mate

'appen ye'll 'av ter bob abowt a bit befor ye get em in order so tek up yer positiun last.

b) March em rownd ther ship an' peel 'em awf wun at a toime.

c) Check yer crew are now one at each corner o' the ship wiv Fifth Mate left over.

d) Throw the Fifth Mate overboard. That'll teech the ovvers ter mind ther buisiness.

e) Line up the rest o' the crew in the followin order:

Cap'n - Cook - Cabin Boy

f) Get the Cook ter cook ther Cabin Boy.

g) Throw one o' the Cabin Boys legs to each of the four mates an eet the rest yeself.

There's sum stuff you can do now you got a bit o' grub in yer belly. See Chapter 9.

h) Put into nearest port an get a new Cabin Boy.


Sum werds o' advice:

Don't allow the Fifth Mate ter wear plimsolls - yer goin' ter need 'em wen ye get ter Chapter 20. Refer back to Chapter 2 for "rum".

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

It be a foine book fer Serious Pirates 'appen it be a but out o' date. It be amazin wot ye ken lern from old books. Mebbe sum ovver Chapters will turn up.

Arrr... I read that book once. I recalls a chapter entitled "How Big An Anchor Should My Ship Have?"

It went inter all sorts o' fancy calculations about displacements an' drag coefficients an' wave vectors an' such. All bollux if ye asks me. A good rule o' thumb be this: put twenty prisoners in a sack, tie the sack to the anchor an' throw the lot o'er the side. If it stays sunk, it be 'eavy enough.
