We're on the boat every weekend, so there's no need to worry about it. Plus, if we ever run out I just pop round to Chrispy's boat the start drinking his supply - just wish he'd sort out the ice situation !
IMNSHO, to take all booze off the boat would mean I'd have to visit a "dry" boat to check on it during the winter!
How would I know it really was my boat and not another in some parallel universe, it would certainly feel strange visiting wheat I thought was my boat and not being able to check that I'd bought some reasonable stuff and it was still in good condition and might even be shared etc etc.
Tell me oldgit, do you not check on your boat through the winter or do you actually carry out the scenario I have drawn?
Well mines got umpteen cans of Boddy's on board, along with other cans that I cant stand, been there for about nine months.
But on the other hand, also large bottle of whiskey for emergencies. or when the pub's shut.
It has been mentioned that carrying less than 50 bottles of beer per male crew member per day, could have a marked effect on the performance of the boat. Would loosing willing crew members be worth the extra speed ?
A boat without booze - how horrifying. MVII is still awash with cans of Cafferreys 4.2% stuff (very nice it is too). She's a bit low on storage space so there is only a further couple of litres of rocket fuel secreted around.
I've dumped a bag marked "shoes, casual - black 12 pairs) which SWMBO said was important - only another six of those bags to go and I might find the flare pack...
