Ahoy, Me Hearties!

Tis I, Capt'n Crafty McGrim, a simple lurker for a long time here.

Having been a renter with very little room, not to mention being in the Navy gave me less room (I often lived aboard ship, to save money), a Tiki/Pirate bar has been just a dream.

But after carefully saving me doubloons over the years, my circumstances finally changed enough to allow me to pilfer a new lair of me own.


So thusly armed, I decided to open an account here as I've the space to finally build me Pirate's dream Tavern.

"Cap'n Crafty McGrim's Crimson Cutlass Tavern and World's Inn"

First my location:

I live in the New Orleans area. Tis Very Piratey indeed.

Me Lair/House's location has a dock and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Allowing myself and various pirate brethren to come and go in the dead of night for dark and dangerous purposes.

The other reason for the getting a dock is because currently I am in the process of getting restoration work done on my three masted frigate (it's currently out of country in dry-dock) a fine 60ft steel hulled sailing vessel of 37 tons -will get photos up sometime late next year when it's much more presentable.

Aye so it will eventually be berthed here at here at the "Crimson Cutlass Tavern and World's Inn", savy?

Location, I plans to build me Inn here, set upon a new a second set of moorings over the the dock.

It will be a 2nd floor, elevated deck level upon which The Inn itself will sit, overhanging the dock itself and provided easy access to my Vessel while in port.

Currently the idea to use this Home Depot Shed type to sit on the currently nonexistent 2nd level and be the base for the inn itself after much remodeling of course.


As of right now I just have some concepts and have never done anything like this before... after all I be a pirate and I just made my ship's carpenter walk the plank last week.

So I thought I would take me quill in hand and chart myself a log here.

I do this in order firm up my dark and sinister plans and receive some mentor-ship from the good brethren here, that I might complete me task in a timely and semi-coherent manner.

Right now still currently in the process of moving in this but should be done by mid Feb. I am stuck in a Rental lease and am waiting for it to expire.

So will keep the thread updated with the move and begin with small things like my attempts to learn Tiki carving, of course, the ongoing Inn building, updates on my ship's restoration progress and eventually sailing up it here from South America to it's berth at the World's Inn.

Arrh!!!!


Since storms are common here in the Gulf I may be replacing the shrubbery also with non invasive Black& Blue Bamboo along with Buddha Belly Bamboo. I think it sort of sets the stage for what will eventually be the Inn in the back.





I want to Thank everyone for all the years of enjoyment of looking at Tiki central!

Ok beginning to dig around for Ideas for the Bar...
I like this idea/concept, except with more Tikiness and not quite as elaborate.

Instead of buying a pre-fabbed shed type of building, you may be able to find a local handyman who will frame you up a similar size building, but with more architectural promise, like a steeper roof pitch. This may not cost you much more than buying the pre-made building, depending on who you find. A large protruding ridge beam is not too tough to do, and adds dramatic impact, island style. Nice start to your thread sir. I would think you may have a little tike bar on board your vessel as well.

Thanks for the suggestion! I will look into that. I like the idea that it gives more flexibility to the build and get more of an architectural pirate look. I want it to stand out to passing sailboats, having sort of that "Pirates Of the Caribbean" look to people on the Disney boat Ride.

I will give some thought to having a second Tiki bar on the Ship. Thanks again!

There is a good smallish bar on this page you could copy...
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=43640&forum=20&start=195

And on the "non invasive Black& Blue Bamboo" My wife got some of that and it runs, bamboo just goes everywhere so take care where you plant it.
Me I would not plant it there, Horsetail rush would look good too and can be managed with more ease.

Good luck, and welcome to TC.

UPDATE: The first house deal fell through.

The owner didn't want to make repairs and this is a VA Loan so Repairs are required.

However have made an offer on an equally nice house with an awesome dock of which I would own 70ft into the waterway. This gives more than enough room to build the bar over the waterway and still have plenty for my sailing vessel.

Ideas, would like to copy what the fantastic craftsman that is creating the Hulu Sue bar is doing...a moon showing through the ceiling.
Except, instead of bamboo, ship's planking maybe. Wonder if I could put a computer monitor and use a pc moon/skyscape Wallpaper.

From Hulu Sue Thread:

I fight in the SCA (medieval re-creationist, like the civil war reenactors)

So plan to hang my weapons in the bar.
Working on my Rapier/Katana currently lacquering the scabbard.

Started searching for lights. Found these at Home Depot.


Next week the new house gets inspected
Have decided to do the project in phases.
Will start by building a small Tiki/pirate Bar on the main deck to experiment with.


Going to have a pier repair/construction company to get a quote for placing pilings for the final project, since the World's Inn is to be sitting out on the water. The property extend's seventy feet out into the canal, so I have plenty of space to build.

In the meantime will work on the Main deck bar to get a feel for what I am doing.
Starting to draw up sketches.

Loving the potential! And 70 feet out into the water??? That's gonna be killer! Question for you, any idea what the item number is for that Home Depot fishing globe light? I can't make one that cheap, but also didn't see it listed on their website (prolly user error on my part). And they never have cool stuff like that here in the Ohio stores (don't even get me started on the Tiki Diablo offerings that weren't available east of the Mississippi - grrrrr). Thanks!

I think he means he has 70 feet of waterfront. I could be wrong, but building 70 feet out into the channel looks like it'd be a serious navigation hazard.

But yeah, I cannot wait to see how this project turns out. Epic may not be too strong a word.

Yep 60ft of water front and 70ft OUT into the canal. So lots of room to build. I will go back to Home depot and get the number for you.

60ft of water front and 70ft OUT into the canal, although I wont build out that far. Like you said I think that's just asking for trouble. I think the canal is 250 ft across, the photograph doesnt really show the distance. But still why risk anything? Thanks! I hope it will turn out well. I will do a bar on the main deck first as sort of a test project.
