TGIF Sunset Cruise

TGIF!  We went on an open ocean sail after work today!  Captain's take: wind was 1-3 mph, 2-4 ft swell, 7 second intervals.  Basically, bobbing in the duldrums...
So, we headed back into the bay for some pictures in the "magic hour"!
Wondered about this boat from Las Vegas....???  Port of Call?  The Venetian?  Treasure Island?
Stopped in for Fish and Chips at the Local Hut!

I ordered a "Sex on the Beach".  Just so you know, this is out of my usual form--too much Red #5.  But, we are thinking that we have to come up with a drink called "Sex on the Boat".  The Captain says that it must stave off scurvy in order to be authentic. "Sex on the Beach" is Vodka based, but I wanted to come up with a Rum alternative.  But, isn't that a "Shipwreck"?  We don't want that!  Any suggestions?

  1. Scurvy (Vitamin C deficiency common amongst early sailors and explorers of the New World), Rum, and Royal Navy Grog are comprehensively covered on the "Scurvy" Wikipedia entry. I highly recommend reading it; prerequisite sailor stuff!
