Improving morale on bahamas cruise

Dang, I missed an opportunity to "improve morale" when I was sailing to the Bahamas.
Remember the story of the five lost navy TBM bombers in 1945 in the "Bermuda Triangle"? Here is the story:Flight 19
It happed right where we sailed and they should have been over Great Sale Cay when lost.
It would be perfect, a dark night anchored in the little bight at Great Sale with the wind whistling in the spreaders, sit in the cockpit and tell this story.

It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."

Dark and Stormies made with Pussers Navy Rum administered as required will work in most situations to raise morale.
