A hookah? ...one would have to be insane to bring drugs cruising. I'm sure there are those who do, but I would not want to spend the rest of my life in a Mexican jail.

Not a Hookah for drugs, a hookah for diving, besides, a hookah pipe is more often used for tobacco smoking throughout the world than drugs by the counter culture.

A hookah is also useful when the day is especially hot with no wind. You just dive under the boat and relax! A waterproof book would be useful as well.
Our hookah was electric and we had lots of solar panels so it could run continuously without draining the batteries.

Also you could get good money or drugs for a good Hooka in a Mexican prison!

I notice in the survey that only one person is taking a suit and tie while cruising. I wonder if they are British

Suit and Tie. Been to three funerals in the last three years. Worn my suit 3 times. If know one dies I don't know that I would need one.

The hair dryer is for defrosting the freezer.

We play Scrabble, not Monopoly.

We each have an outfit (blazer, khakis or linen pants and a tie for the capt.) that can be worn to a wedding or funeral.
