My homecomings were never memorable........the only people who came to greet me were the revenuers.
Long John told me many years ago.....keep yer dubloons safe, and shut the parrot was OK for him, his peg leg was hollow, he could
keep his stash there, and the parrot was fed on rum for an hour before we landed. Me and blind pugh would hide in the Foc'sle locker 'til them
revenuers had gone.....there was one particular nasty bast*rd....a sergeant....I think they called him Peppa.....wouldn't leave until he'd shafted
some poor sod for some minor infringement.

Never did one! Always disembarked off Falmouth back to either CU or VL. Closest to anything different from the norm was coming back from the Stan (2nd time) :(

Only times I've done it on a boat, by the time we'd got the engine room hatch open so we could rig shore supply everyone had buggered off :(
