Ships are made of parts. Let's use this topic to break down the ship into its sub-components.
  • Hull
  • Propulsion
  • Pirate Communications
  • Situational Awareness
  • Defense Systems
    • Electronic countermeasures
    • Public Shaming
  • Pirate Comfort
  • Food/Supplies
  • Cargo
    • Profit
    • Security

Cargo
Commerce is the key to freedom.
A cargo can be human, or non-human. It can be "permitted" or "forbidden". It can be bulk or compact.

The wonderful thing about a lighter than air vessel is that it can be flown safely at very low elevations, well below the vision of radar, and without the need for roads.

Yes!

Breaking these systems and functions down into tangible elements that will not only be necessary for the operation of the ship, but also can apply to (and be tested in) other undertakings.

Communications: Necessary for ship operations, but if we can develop a great system for private pirate communications, we can use these methods off-ship, now.
Cargo: Methods and systems to move goods around, keeping them safe and private, sometimes in concert with other pirate allies. Requires: communications, situational awareness.

A grievance court

A criminal court

A committee of vigilance that would evaluate the actions of the other two courts and recommend solutions to the courts judgments. Then with the agreement of the court and the committee, decide the action or actions to be taken to rectify the issue and bring true justice.

Shelter
We are working to develop Freedom Bed n Breakfast to fill this need.

Among other things, you are free to the measure of your ability to travel. But when you travel you must also maintain shelter, either in your vessel or in a port. We feel that shelter shouldn't be tracked, taxed, and regulated by the Crown.
That's where Freedom Bed n Breakfast comes in.

I'll update this as the app develops.

Communications should be free and open. Ships are often at sea - so communication at a distance is always an issue. Should not all communication be free of taxes levied on the crowns cables?

Future comms: find a way to keep an entangled particle in a magnetic trap. its also entangled mate is in another magnetic trap. You can read its spin with a laser. If the laser is polarized, you can make it have one spin or the other depending upon which side of the trapped particle you illuminate with the laser pulse. This can be how you exchange ones and zeros, hence communicate. In theory nobody can eavesdrop on the changes in the entangled partices, although each side is still subject to normal bugging in the room etc.

A side benefit is that in theory there is no range limits or even signal delays, but this has yet to be verified, the Chinese make a lot of claims.

Vision: a and held, private comm with connection to one other anywhere in the solar system or even the universe, with no delays.

Power:Solar is fine and all, but it currently can't deliver consistent performance Storage can't yet be light enough for most Amps/hours tasks. You have to add something with ooomph like a Thorium Reactor, but those wouldn't be private "legally". Conversely you can reduce the power needs or limit it during dark hours.
