There, ye Scurvy Bilge Rat!
What be all this'ere talk of laws on piracy, Oi be wondering what
side ye is on. The only law we buccaneers knows of is that a King
robs the poor under the protection of the law, whereas a pirate
robs the rich under the protection of his own courage. But anyway
Oi's bin surfing, no not that thing where ye slides down waves on
a bit of wood, 'cause us buccaneers knows of better games ye can
play with a plank of wood! No Oi've bin surfing that there internet
thingy, looking for other buccaneers and pirates the likes of us.
So 'ere be a list of wot Oi've found.

Author site of 'Seawitch'
Quite and interesting site, wot has lots of historical info
on pirates like us, also has a link to a pirate shop wot sells
some good pirate flags.
This is the site of a US based pirate magazine, very interesting
but it does not seem to change very often.
A pirate chat room run by the same people, try logging on some
time, there’s some interesting discussions going on

so's the sharks can use the splinters for toothpicks!
