Well, there are a number of explanations; none of them seem to be really agreed on.
As for me, if forced to drink Corona, I like the lime (or lemon) just to make the skunky taste go away.
But then again, I'm not much of a beer guy to start with. On the other hand, serve me up just about any Canadian whiskey, or a really good bourbon (Maker's Mark) and it's all good.
Still got my fingers crossed for you to find a boat, but as I'm boat-less and 2500 miles away, I'm not much help.
