The Last Pirate

Record #:
Ross Morphew and his family runs a boat repair shop in Morehead City but he and his family live on a pirate ship. Morphew hired an architect to design and build the ship, and his family lives there, dressing on pirates on weekends and holidays to “attack” other boats. The State has awarded the Morphews an official privateer's commission for the success of their exploits. Their boat is called the MEKA II and is a highly popular tourist attraction.
