Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board

We keep vodka and sherry in plastic containers in the fridge but table wine we stick with glass. When heading out we store wine in a drawer or in the bilges encased in towels or a sock. We buy cheap synthetic walking socks from a camping store and thus far have not have any breakages even during some pretty wild weather off the NSW coast. Don't use glass when actually sailing, suffered a few (less than five) breakages of wine glasses over the years but usualy broken stem rather than completely smashed.

Personally I think the no glass thing is an overeaction.
