    Voyages for Pirates suggests some kind of travel guide for would be pirates, like a Frommer's guide to the pirate life.

    "This pillaging route should take you about 3 hours if you take the long route, but only about and hour and a half if you take the short leg. However, you'll collect a lot more booty on the longer route, while the shorter leg is more heavily patrolled by the Royal Navy, so you run a higher risk of being boarded and your plunder seized. "
