It's nothing I've ever been trained in, and I can only count higher than 20 accurately if I pay very very close attention. But I can do arithmetic in my head and I do my taxes on paper with a pencil, so that should work for a pirate ship, right? Besides, the boarding parties can be sent out to deal with any merchants who are, hmm, mistaken about our bill...

:mrgreen:
OOOH, I like this attitude. I nominate him fer this job. I bet he can count to 40 if the other guy holds still long enough. And, he is progressive in thinking. Assuming the merchants are making mistakes.

As much fun a a pirate ship would be, I'd rather repair a steel-hulled vessel than a wooden one. Besides, if I don't find a use for my monster welder soon, I'll likely be selling it to buy more goodies. Electro-fishing for sharks, maybe?

Bummer, maybe we can add some steel goodies to the ship... Torpedo tubes maybe?

I bet I can find a few repairable breech-loading towed artillery pieces. Is it acceptable for our lookout to use a radio to refine our aim? I'm not up on semaphore. :oops:

If our Fearless Leader veto's the fun guns, we can always have a contest for catapult/trebuchet design. Just think of them as integrally-suppressed cannons. Ninja-pirate attack!

We could probably swing the money for some of the ones I looked at on ebay. While it would be cool how could we justify it? I've always thought we could write off a small tank as publicity at the different zombie themed evens but a ship is a bit more limited. Although loading it with cannons would be awesome, and potentially illegal.

Speaking from experience, as long as we stay with muzzle loading cannons we will be okay ,and with enough drill we can probably get to about 4 rounds a min from each gun ,and doesn't it come with 6 bronze cannon anyway .

A few of our Mardi Gras parades are boat-&-barge parades on the rivers and bays. Swunk hates moonpies (I'm not fond of them either) so we'll have to find something else to throw.

I'll try to keep my chimp and monkey landing party members away from the rum and I'll let them know of the "No Looting" policy on the ship.

As for the monkey who stole the goat and crops, he's been suspended without bananas for a few weeks and he says he's very sorry for what he did.

Did we decide what their uniforms would consist of or are we still debating on that topic ? I vote for chimp and monkey sized tactical gear. :lol:

What are our uniforms going to be?

Tactical pants, blue wire & ZS vest tops?
Neon Tutus optional of course.

Regarding hats, I'm sure Shrapnel & Chimpov could point us in the right direction :mrgreen:

I favour one of these babies.

I'm planning on wearing my ushanka or a boonie hat and my chimp/monkey army will be wearing something similar.

Now I just need to find a source for chimp sized ushanka hats.

For everyone else, y'all can wear whatever you please. As for uniforms, I'm in for blue jeans, tactical gear and a ZS vest.
