Man The Ropes, You Rum Sodden Tars!

This is the second part of my reunion voyage aboard the Privateer Lynx.  It was a stormy voyage and we went out to the Bay for a short trip before mutiny and raindrops brought us back into port.  Since I was pressed into service I didn't get the benefits of the regular crew but I had to work just as hard.  The sailing was photographed as well as filmed.  The film is in black and white to add authenticity.

More on the trip in future posts.  Shhh.  Don't tell the captain but I snuck down in the hold and grabbed my ration of hardtack and rum before I was kicked off ship.  

Thanks Patti for the pics.

The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
