We can't all be on it at the same time. Think of it as a pirate ship timeshare.

Ok that takes us to the simple math.3750 share holders ,people on board at the same time-i say 50 tops.Simple calculations shows us that if everyone wants to spend 1 month sailing, he can do it once in 6.25 years.Or even up to 7 years assuming that sheep needs maintenance at least one month a year.

Oh for heaven sake, this was supposed to be for fun.
All of a sudden people are taking it for something serious?

Well, you are still welcome at the pub in Granny's Grotto when you make it into port.
Lots of buxom wenches of all ages (and a few strapping young men).
Arrrrrrrgh!



Edit - Would toy trains be too far out of character for a pirate pub?
I DO love me toy trains!

A submarine with a Jolly Roger flag near Somalia is fun.Who sais its not ? You can have a base in Yemen(very cheap guns and ammo)and spend time between raids shooting lions in the desert.And if you come across with some guy from Al-qaeda in the pub you can kidnap him for the reward.On your own submarine!Isnt it a dream? A sub is in all ways better the a ship.

Come on, a ZS pirate ship. It's basically the best idea ever. We could sail the seven seas, spreading preparedness and disaster relief wherever we went. I have ten dollars to put towards the purchase price of this fine vessel. Who's with me?
This is the OP.
Somali Piracy is not mentioned.

The policy of ZS pirates is to keep away from the areas with piracy? Got it.

Did ZS add music to some threads? I could swear I hear the theme to Gilligan's Island playing faintly in the background...

Yes, but you need one very critical component... sun. Which is notoriously lacking on submerged submarines...

Okay, let me put it like this...

Which would you rather:

Watching well-oiled, bikini clad, buxom wenches relaxing up on deck and getting some rays?

or

Watching fully clothed buxom wenches walking into the tanning bed compartment on a sub and slamming the hatch shut?

Be careful how you answer. The future of your Man Card is at stake here...

I'm good either way. On a sub, it will likely get warm, and the sailors can strip to their skivvies and sing sea shanties while glistening with sweat. On a ship, they can be shirtless on the deck or in the rigging, singing sea shanties.

I can oaf either way.

Ummm... quite frankly, that conjures up mental images I really would rather not deal with. I'm not sure the world, or at least our fellow crew, is ready to see some of us naked... Myself for instance... Trust me, it's not a pretty sight. :lol:
