This is me rolling my eyes. I don't care if it's damaged. If it brings the buzz that's good enough.

You can drink on your boat in hot places like Texas or the Carib - or you can stay home and keep your scotch in the fridge because it demands it. A real man never lets his booze run his life. He sails.

Better. The plastic ones have a phase change happening, which gives them respectable cooling power. The stones will cool the drink 10-15F below room temp, but they're done after that. And they're hard enough to chip your glassware if you're not careful with them. Or your teeth. Ice is soft in comparison.

Heh. Interestingly, the Yamazaki 12 is a single malt that actually LIKES ice. (The 18 doesn't, btw. The things I do for SCIENCE!)

Yep. The original rocks for "on the rocks".

Yeah - I saw 52 knots last night. We probably had a couple of puffs that were a bit higher.

Bimini is fine, panels are fine - no problemo.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

For mixed drinks like 'dark and stormy's (Rum and Ginger Beer) freeze some mix into cubes and use them instead of ice cubes....

That of course is my truthful opinion
That, my friend, is the gospel according to Noe Booker.
