Dougherty County-- You've heard of the pirates of the Caribbean, but what about the pirates of the Flint River.

Jos Bekkers of Albany recently finished a pirate ship to give kids at the River Pointe Golf Club Pirates Camp a pirate-like adventure on the Flint River.

"About six weeks ago is when I started the drawing, it's less work than it appears. It's really not that hard to do," says Bekkers. The young pirates spent Thursday launching water ballons from the ship and trying to steal some treasure.
