The Pirate Uccello page

Welcome to world of ukeleles!!!

Tiny Tim playing a ukelele PB playing a ukelele

Find all the ukeleles you want all on one web page!

Follow all the hot ukelele links!

Marvel at the ugliness that netscape's font mark-up will allow!

The best of these is The Hawaii Ukulele Guide from Maui, Hawaii

Unless, of course, you didn't want ukeleles - perhaps you were searching for a page on Paolo Ucello, the Renaissance artist?

skull and cross-bones This is the pirate Uccello page, acting like a siren to lure you from the safe waters of proper uccello pages, like the one James Hurst has, onto the rocky shores of ukelele-dom.

The real Pirate Uccello

I've come across some weird happenings on the net, but this one really proved to me that nothing is too bizarre to be on the internet. About two years after I put this page up as a joke on my friend James Hurst and his page on Paolo Uccello, I got this email from Paul Uccello:

Robert:

I was quite surprised to find this site as the title is a name I acquired many years ago by associates and finally by many who sail along the Atlantic coast of the United States.

After I left the U.S. Coast Guard, where I commanded a coastal patrol boat, in the early 1980's, I started a quick response marine salvage company on the Connecticut coast, the State where I was born and raised.

I soon became known as a rouge salvor, responding to distressed vessels, saving them from their fate, then claiming salvage awards for these risky deeds at sea.

In time I became quite successful in this endeavor, negotiating with marine insurance carriers for ever larger monetary awards. I soon became know as a modern day, first world pirate.

You and your "mates" may be interested in visiting my site. Do so and write back.
