Welcome to the Redesigned Site!!
My interest in pirates does not go back to reading Treasure Island as a kid like most people, (I haven't read it yet!) but to the Goonies, likely my favorite movie of all time. This site however, came about after I wrote a paper in college about Piracy. This paper is included here in its entirety.
Please sit down, have a mug of ale, and stay awhile. Shop with the affiliates to keep this site active. I have chosen ones that can specifically complement this site and are reputable. Please don't hesitate to contact me with comments, questions or even submissions!

Pirates of Darkwater was a Hanna Barbera cartoon of the early 1990's. Epic Fantasy cartoon that was never completed due to cancellation. On a fantasy world, the characters sought magical treasures to save their planet from "Darkwater". Darkwater could reach up and cover whole ships with its black cloak and swallow it completely. It was one of my favorites and when I started sailing, the term "Darkwater" referring to how you can see where the wind is, always remined me of this fantastic animated adventure that was cut so short.
Fan page - this page was off to a great start but was never completed and has not been updated in years.
