If you've got a pirate ship, I'm your bouy.
Actually, I'm ex Navy, love sailing, and wish I could contribute to weekend events on a pirate ship in the Puget Sound. I almost bought an 80' 1920s tugboat to be converted, but I found out that it needed a new hull which cost more than the entire vessel itself.
And the insurance, don't even get me started...
It doesn't matter what faith you believe in, if there's a Hell its populated by insurance company executives, lobbyists, and congresspeople.
@_@ That's my belief, anyway.
community fund for a ship?
