Balinese ceremonies for Piratically orientated speedboats

Once every 6 months on the Balinese calendar we have to bless all our metal and machines.

We pray to the Gods they don’t fail us at inopportune moments.

We pray for calm seas and the wind at our backs.

For a bounty of tourist gold cards in the high season so when the low season comes we know we are secure from deprivation 🙂

Dear Gods bless this fleet and all who sail in them.

Gods Bless the Fleet

Another six months have pasted and its that time again to bless all things mechanical.

Brooding skys over the Sea Rovers fleet

Heavens brood as the fleet is prepared for a jolly good blessing.

Our Captain Sahari and trainee Misnawi also get involved, assisting with the blessings. Though Muslim they respect the Balinese traditions as we do theirs. Shame the rest of the world isn’t always so enlightened.

All pray!

Gods bless the Sea Rovers Fleet and all who sail in her.


Om Shanti Shanti Santi Om.

Grubs up lads! Tuck in.

Alright Lets eat.

So once again you can feel safe knowing that you’re sailing aboard the totally blessed Sea Rovers Brethren Fleet.
