Was she dreaming? Hours before the costumed "Pirates' Ball," Elizabeth Rawley witnessed a strange spectacle in the waters off Key West. Engaged in mortal combat was the Black Cutter -- Captain Richard Colter's ship.
Elizabeth was obsessed with the eighteenth century ship's treasure, and with it's captain, A swashbuckling privateer who commanded the high seas and made women swoon for the favor of his wild passions. Then, on a moonlit beach, she found the body washed up, in a homespun shirt, breeches, and hemp tying back his long hair. It was Richard Colter, and he was alive!
