3. Is there more? Oh, heavens, yes. The big online message board for local privateer/pyrate mayhem is the "PDX Pirate" Yahoo! Group, on the Web at YG.PyratesR.US. You can also visit a related "Cyber Pub and Forum" at Pub.PyratesR.US for more detailed discussions of the “Golden Age of Piracy” (1690-1730, apparently).
4. I’m told that the veteran pirate rockers of Sunken Chest have summer shows and a new CD in the works. Check SunkenChest.net for updates.
5. And finally: Info on songs, clubs, events and much more can be found at the excellent pirate-community Web resource NoQuarterGiven.net.
