'Pirate' ship with, literally, a skeleton crew for sale on Internet

SAN ANGELO, Texas — Arrrrrr ye' tired of your land-lubbin' job and would rather live the pirate's life, but don't have a pirate ship to call your own? 

A Virginia man has just the vessel you and your scabrous crew can use to sail the seven seas — or at least have a really interesting barbecue party.

On Nov. 28, Virgina Beach, Va., resident Daniel Corder listed his "pirate ship" available for sale on the Northern Neck Trading Post Facebook page.

With a familiar Jolly Roger insignia on the back, the ship measures 55 feet in length and is being sold complete with two cannons and a literal skeleton crew, according to the Facebook listing. In one image, a skeleton (hopefully fake) is holding the vessel's wheel.

"The ship is suitable for a floating guesthouse for your place on the water or to live aboard in the marina!" writes Corder.

Aspiring buccaneers who fancy making friends, loved ones or maybe just their in-laws walk the plank may want to cough up their doubloons quickly. As of Friday afternoon, Corder's Facebook post has been shared over 6,000 times.

The ship is listed for $15,000.
