Now I invite the mailstron of abuse. Real ale can only be served at a cool room temperature to fully appreciate the juxtposition of the hops and malt. 'Beers' which anethetise the tonsils might as well be icy water as there is nothing to taste. Apart from good hearty British ales, I love the rich heavy Trappist Monk brews.

Good luck finding a Trappist ale in the Caribbean. You take what you can get - occasionally I've seen Grand Cru's or seconds on sale in the Caribbean, but unless they've been handled correctly your chances of getting vinegar or spoiled goods are pretty high. Local brews are a better bang-per-buck

No alc onboard.

OK ;-) if only one than a cold Polish, Slovak, Tchek or German/Austrian, bottled.

A sip of rum, if at anchor and good weather. Against my rules, but the worse for the rules.

Well - that's a shame. A "sundowner" on a long passage or even a "German Breakfast" after a long hard night are one of the pleasures of sailing IMHO.

Diff'rent strokes... If a bad situation occurs I like to have my wits about me- Truth be told, I just wouldn't enjoy it underway.

Indeed, indeed! And there's absolutely no sense in drinking it when you arent going to enjoy it.

Pertaining to the post after yours, as well, Yes, I thought I might have to keep my head under the parapet for a bit!

Not, of course, that I or any on this board, would condone too much alcohol, but I was brought up on a tot of rum a day which was issued in the Royal Navy until July 1970. If the Queen encouraged me to drink it - who was little old I to say no? Even when the Admiralty decided that it was too much hassle, they still issued 2 cans of strong beer per man/day then later, having been promoted, a couple of glasses of wine at dinner (if you didnt have the Middle Watch) was entirely un-frowned upon.
