Renaming a Boat
We''ve had very good results from using rum (preferably Mount Gay or Gosling''s Black Seal), though Champagne should also be acceptable to the powers that be (or may not be, but why tempt fate?) (Also note that Mumm has withdrawn from sponsoring the Admirals'' Cup, so Tattinger might be a better route in that regard.) Appropriate exhortations to the applicable deities should be made, of course, with the requisite toasts and offerings. Neptune has seemed pleased with the heavy-handed shots we gave him. We''ve won most of the available club silver since our name change and have enjoyed (mostly) smooth sailing ever since. Friday the 13th is another question, however. It might be good to avoid that one, even if you''re pouring the best bubbly.
