The Golden Hinde= Golden Ass = Golden Booty
Except that Drakes big claim to piracy was when he looted a disabled Spanish Armada ship during their failed Crusade against England.
Anyone who wanders away from a fight for their country to gather booty is alright by me. Piracy > Nationalism.
He did a lot mre though and used to raid Spanish ports and steal all their stuff. He also once nicked all their gold from Panama and made every one of his crew a gazillionaire (in old money). He was more of an amphibious pirate, a marine who did most of his piracy on land.
