Bartholomew Roberts (1682 – 1722), born John Roberts, was a Welsh pirate who raided ships off the Americas and West Africa between 1719 and 1722. aka "Black Bart", name was coined as the title of a 20th-century poem by the Welsh poet I. D. Hooson, who apparently picked that name because Johnson described Roberts as having a "black" complexion. (This name was never used in his lifetime.)
Ahoy! I am Julia Sparrow. Yes, daughter of Jack Sparrow. I prefer to be called Captain though. I have my own ship and crew; I'm good with a sword, like to explore, and read. I may be a little crazy, but crazy people don't know they are crazy, I know I'm crazy therefor I'm not crazy, isn't that crazy?
Careening and re-caulking. First one ran a ship into shallow water and waited for the tide. Once 'high and dry' the ship's hull would be 'careened', (removing barnacles to make the ship faster). Next one caulked using oakum (rope fibres) and hot, smoky tar. One worked quickly before the tide returned: hence the phrases moving 'like smoke and oakum' and going at it 'hammer and tongs' (one used tongs to dip the oakum in the hot tar, then a hammer drove the fibres between the planks).
