To most, we would probably be in the "drink too much" category. We have a full bar on our boat and always offer friends and guests a cocktail, beer
or wine. We will do large raft ups (5-20 boats) about once a month and usually the whole group is drinking into the wee hours and having fun.
Sunday mornings, one of the local radio
stations does "acoustic sunrise" from 8 to 11 AM, it's become somewhat of a tradition that our friends will make there way down to our cockpit
for acoustic sunrise and cocktails. Usually I make bloody marries, white Russians, pain killers, home made rumchata, etc. I have been told I make the best bloodies around so when I make them I now have to make about 3-4 gallons to go around.
We do tend to drink more during the boating
season than in the winter. Mainly because we are kind of hermits in the winter. So when we start to cruise
full time next year it could be interesting.
But I never have more than one drink until we are secured for the night. If there is iffy weather
, I will have a sundowner then just drink water
the rest of the night. We do have some friends that drink too much for operating their boats but most will only have a few if they are going to be on the move and save their drinking for when they are secure for the night. Well, with the exceptions of inflatables.
