Taking the ship from astern

Some Background on Braugh

Braugh Roberts was known as "bread" to his friends because unlike most men at the time he had a sourdough recipe from his mother that made ship's tack by comparison taste like dried pigeon poop.

Too many traumas in young Bread's early life may have sealed his fate, for he took up piracy out of Nassau soon after his 22nd birthday. The tales of Bread Pirate Roberts have been told and re-told for hundreds of years and no doubt shall continue to be told for a hundred more. Yes a good, hearty sourdough recipe is not worth leaving behind!
