Cocktail Glasses

I'm looking for a source for cocktail glasses.....not your average glass these are weighted and round on the bottom and probably hold around 8 oz. or so. They weable wobble on there round bottom but refuse to tip over...I've seen them but can't recall where?

Nothing special, but my wife found some polycarbonate cocktail "glasses" locally with little blue fishes on them (not my selection guys). She also got wine glasses to match with little blue sailboats (again, not my choice).

I have to admit though, both have very wide bottoms and are sailboat stable.

I really do like drinking wine out of glass which can be a problem on board but we found these round plastic gizmos that fit over the bottom of the stem and would work on a typical cocktail glass I'd reckon. Surprisingly effective. Not to say that I'd use 'em at sea but when anchored or moored a good thing. We bought a set of cheap wine glasses, not total crap but only cost about $15.00 for a set of six. We've broken more wine glasses at home in the last 18 months than we have on board..

ps - sorry if that doesn't answer your question exactly but I've not seen anything that corresponds to your description.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

sailingdog, very, very close but they don't look to be weighted. The glasses I saw had about an inch or so solid glass on the bottom to keep them upright.
SailorMitch,I'll check Ebay thanks.

I'll post a pic of my Mt. Gay glasses this weekend. I bought one on ebay and I think the other one came with a 1.75 liter bottle of Mt. Gay. they are nifty glasses and a conversation piece whenever I bring them out.
