Project Black Bearl is one of Pirate Relief‘s projects they are seeking by no later than 2025 in achieving.
At present, negotiations are being made in the use of some “historic tall sailing ships” that are already in use, as a means of vehicles to use until we can afford our own to purchase or build. As the end of 2021/2022 is focused on achieving a home base on the coast somewhere in the world through Project Gypsy, most likely England near Penzance; Oregon near Eugene / Ashland / or Portland, Washington near Point Roberts, Seattle, or Bellingham; or Florida near St. Augustine, Melbourne, or Miami as being the most realistic of locations due to support, community, services, land, and/or ship expertise located in these regions that might become accessible to us.
The first exciting and alluring vessel we’ve had our eye on is “The Black Pearl” which is currently on sale for a mere $994,000 (currently located in Honduras). Of course, no-where in our budget line at the present moment, but definitely an aspiring dream to work towards. Realistically though, we’ll start with any good, sturdy, long distance sea worthy tall sailing ship vessel, and will even start out with a small sailing boat or yacht if we have to.
Step One: We will tackle the sea by getting our crew members trained and accomplished mariners or seamen. We’ll start off with a small vessel, and work up to buying or building a tall sailing vessel. A pirate vessel to hold our crew that is sea-worthy enough to at least travel the coasts of North and South America or Europe. We hope to obtain Cross-ocean strength to wander the shores of other exotic coasts as well. We intend to primarily sail by the power of the wind, doing away with the oil-sucking demands that our world is held imprisoned to. But we’ll have a backup fuel based method to get places in times of urgency on time. We’ll also by that point need to obtain a small vessel to shuttle ourselves from the main ship to shore, and on shore – we’ll have a land-lubber RV for pirate relief needs and shuttling us around for port to inland activities.
Step Two: Beginning with a small vessel from which to start operations from as we gain funding to buy or build our first of many tall ships in replica style of many historic Pirate vessels out there “like” the “Black Pearl” … A ship that can house a crew of 40 or more, a cargo hold capable of holding the supplies we’ll need for our ventures and relief efforts, an on-board museum to keep the history of the “Living Myth” alive, and all the standards we need for a sustainable lifestyle on the sea or along the coastlines … We will continue to harvest ships until we have a strong fleet that can sail off to assist uplifting spirit and bringing back joy to the disenchanted wherever we are needed.
