Talking pre-season ck & practice of critical maneuver

1 ck your equipment; inverter working? make the sure 12 or 110 volt blender checks out and is able to sustain repeated use of ice grinding.

2 Make sure there is a LARGE container for contents of blender.

3 Be very sure there are enough hand held containers with narrow stem. Good rule of thumb = number of crew, guests and at least 3 extra for "mishaps"

5 Develop a plan of action for crew members, who is in charge of blending? cutting board detail, juice mix and ingredients. Ice and or location of more ice, spirits store, (do they deliver?)

6 Be very sure high spirits are in stock and within easy access, stowed safely

7 (optional) poll the crew or Captain makes command decision on music; Buffet, Reggae, etc

8 conduct a pre-season drill; at dockside. Practice until Crew and captain become proficient in the critical maneuver of passing Glass filled stemware with perfectly mixed Margarita in ship to shore, shore to ship, (suggestion, use lemon lime colored soft drink and plastic stemware in case of loss overboard.)

9 Practice #8 until Captain deems crew ready to try the all important maneuver of passing the perfect Margarita ship to ship.

10 Additional aids; plastic stem ware for the faint of heart. MOB harness for person or person's that will be doing the critical maneuver. Young ladies, bikinis, six pack jocks, optional.

Warnings and requirements;
Captain should be a totally aware,sober, and experienced in alongside maneuvers while under power. Explain the inherent dangers of this much understood maneuver to crew. Never tempt fate by hailing CG or CGaux for this maneuver.

Benefits of the critical maneuver; Happiness, good relationships with fellow sailors and common bond with power and sailing vessel operators. Power boat captains may have a renewed fondness and understanding of sailing vessels.

Potential problems may occur when rafting up boats while underway! Never "tie on" to another boat while underway.

Instead of plastic stem ware, plastic beakers work great too and they hold more ice, I mean soft drink, I mean alcohol , yeah it's the latter when you aren't sailing/driving a boat.

We had a naming ceremony dockside and used plastic stemware. They emptied too fast. I think there might have been a hole in mine. I wasn't the only one. We were all having drinking problems.

I like the list, but will be disappointed if MS doesn't follow up with a photo-essay of real-world validation testing.

Around here we use large buckets instead of the stemware. Less likely to break when stepping off the staging with buffer in hand.
