Re: Rum ship aground!

Quoting the article...

"The vesselís engineers have already rectified the engine problem but the vessel needs some assistance off the bank"

Need to lighten her up. Drink up, Canada!

Re: Rum ship aground!

Looking for an expedition vessel... And putting a party crew together right now...
In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...

Mai Tai's fix everything...

Re: Rum ship aground!

Coincidentally ran aground the same day the Pot Head Prime Minister won a sweeping majority government.

Canadians better be careful or they'll get a reputation for being a bunch of drunken stoners.

Oh right...
