Some Highlights of Free Men Of the Sea Adventures:

Tall Ships:
        FMOS has collaborated in a variety of capacities with several tall ships.  We have sailed on them during sea festivals, sea battle reenactments, pirate/privateer family and adult centered cruises, sang sea shanties, assisted them as a liaison for filming or reenactments, and/or crewed as period sailing personnel:
	The Quinnipiack 
	The Providence
	The Rose 
	The Californian
  The Mary E

        We have worked with a variety of nautical history museums in varied capacities such as displaying FMOS’s Against All Flags pirate exhibit, providing artifacts and demonstrations on the Golden Age of Piracy (1690’s-1730’s) through the War of 1812, trained docents regarding pirate and privateer history, prepared and presented interactive workshops/seminars, provided crew for period reenacting, sang period sea shanties, and presented weapons.
