Re: WTF is this?

Eric it may be that the pump out hose was brought down into the boat. I used to work a pump out boat here in the north east, and sometimes that is what had to be done. We would go directly into the tank or sometimes the owners had screw out plugs where we would attach the p/o hose to!!!!!

Honestly, this does not sound appealing and I can find no valve or pump out that would allow this. I wasn't able to do much at the boat this weekend but I was able to confirm that there is DC current in the wire running from the box. Next weekend I'm going to tear the whole apparatus apart and get to the bottom of this mystery.

Ah -- it's an intercom to Upstairs. You push the button & say "Please, God ... I'll never drink tequila again. Just make the headache stop!"

I got stinking drunk on tequila once when I was 18 and haven't touched it since. Pinot Noir, on the other hand, has a tendency to stain decks. Don't ask me how I know

This is such a common experience it makes you wonder how the tequila industry survives. "Our target demographic is 15-21 year olds who have not yet gotten violently sick on tequila. The Spring Break crowd. No sense angling for quality or brand loyalty, cuz they'll drink any old swill -- once."



To your second point, I'm considering medium-pink for the deck on the Ballad. It's an utterly gross color, but it does hide the red wine stains.
