Hello! Welcome to my Patreon page! Together, we are about to bring life and adventure to a neglected and forgotten sailing vessel named FreeStyle. If you haven't heard by now, FreeStyle is a 26 foot Sailboat that, by some twist of fate, I was able to obtain FOR FREE. She was previously neglected and unattended to for the past 15 years and my goal is to give her a new life full of new adventures. Please join me and be a part of this story! With your support, we can all play a role in FreeStyle's new beginning. Thank you guys so much!

Carpenter
$3 or more per creation 5 patrons
There could probably be no more highly regarded artisan in a pirate crew when your life and livelihood depended on the soundness of the wood around and beneath you. A person in this apprenticed trade would use their skill to not only repair battle damage to masts, yards, hatches, and the hull, but to keep the ship's leaky seams in check with wooden plugs and oakum fibers. He would often have separate quarters combined with a workspace. Each carpenter would usually have an assistant in apprenticeship.
Gunner
$5 or more per creation 2 patrons
A gunner would be the leader of any separate group manning the artillery. His special skill would be in aiming, but he would oversee the four to six men required to take the gun through the steps of loading, aiming, firing, resetting, and swabbing for the next load. He would also work to ensure the gun crew's safety in avoiding dangerous overheating or excessive recoiling of the weapon. A master gunner would help to coordinate the timing and accuracy of the individual crews, especially when a broadside was ordered.
Boatswain
$10 or more per creation 0 patrons
Boatswain (bos'n) - This position may be compared to the modern chief petty officer. A ship of any size would require the boatswain to oversee several junior officers who would share his responsibility for the crew's morale and work efficiency as well as the maintenance and repair of the hull, rigging, lines, cables, sails, and anchors.
Quartermaster
$50 or more per creation 0 patrons
As a foreman, he was in charge of maintaining order, distributing rations and supplies, delegating work, and guarding and dividing plunder. In fighting, the quartermaster decided what ships were worth it and often led any boarding party, ultimately deciding what loot to keep. When discipline or punishment was necessary, only he could give it, but even then it was with the agreement of the captain or the vote of the pirate crew. 

In the worst of situations, he was a sheriff enforcing fairness in duels or a judge presiding over jury trials for serious crimes committed among the crew. For all his hard work, the quartermaster received a larger portion of any plunder and would often be asked to command any highly valued ship taken in battle.

First Mate
$100 or more per creation 0 patrons
The captain's right-hand man and the one who would assume his role if he were killed in battle or could no longer perform his duties. 
Goals
$36 of $500 per creation
I would love to keep creating quality, entertaining and useful content that revolves around my passion for boats. My biggest goal would to be able to change my career path to one I enjoy and I am passionate about. Having always been into film and editing since whatever age I learned how to splice VHS video cassettes using 2 VCR's - Creating content for an engaging audience on a topic that gives me the tingles on a full time basis would be a dream come true. If you've found my content entertaining or useful, please consider supporting my goal and becoming part of The Sailing FreeStyle Crew!
