Re: Could abanboned sailboat = Man cave or playhous

Many years ago on St. T in the boatyard on the Lagoon was an old wooden boat partially buried so that what had been the deck was now the counter top of "The Poor Mans Bar " .
The mast held up the roof of the bar/lunch counter and the interior was where Larry the owner locked up his stuff at night . Every one that worked in the yard ate breakfast and lunch there and had a beer after work . It was a favorite of tourists because the bartender and yard workers where nasty and mean to every one in a smart alleckly way . It was a "pour your own " bar , if you ordered rum and coke , then we handed you a glass and a bottle of rum and a bottle of coke . Cruzan rum was then 97 cents a bottle and a large coke cost over two dollars . When you handed the mix to the tourist they would poor lots and lots of rum and a little coke . Its probably gone by now , Larry the owner died 25 years ago or so .
