Opps.... should have clarified... those damn awful plastic corks everyone seems to use these days.... not as co-operative as the traditional corks...
I pulled the wood T bar of a cork screw once it was so damn tough

Using your sword, strike the neck of the bottle with a clean cut sending the cork and top of the bottle overboard in one swift movement

As the Captain you do have your sword on board don't you

If you have a tree on your boat you can use this method



otherwise take a screw/lag bolt, screw into cork, pull out with pliers or string tied to the screw

I use one of these. Multi purpose and generally reliable.

How to open a wine bottle with a shoe.




You DO have a shoe aboard, no?

There were some stories floating around about lighters exploding when used to open a bottle. Using a second bottle can result in the bottle that is being held upside down opening when incorrectly applied which is great fun when it's your buddy wearing it.

I suppose it's mostly a dying art now but there was a time when your average Canadian teenage boy could name 101 ways to open a stubbie; a long gone bottle form as well. It helped to be oblivious to the damage opening the bottle was doing to the items around you. Once seat belts started appearing in cars drinking and driving became a whole lot easier. No more paint chips off the bumper or bent keys on the chain. Opening with the teeth always seemed dicey to me but I knew guys proud of that skill. A quarter would do in a pinch though it was tough to get much leverage. It seemed to me reaching up and popping the top on the wrought iron railing on the front porch should have impressed the girls more then it did.

Still it is hard to beat the pleasure of opening a bottle with a righteous church key.
