sorry, if we can extract your belief that drunks or excessive drinking is innappropriate, then what is?make believe peopple, issues, events... the only thing we can joke about is unreal???

all jokes have a sense of reality in them, that is what makes them funny... andi am sure there isnt a sole alive that would think that drinking humor is in some way going to contribute to more drinking and or more accdients...

And if i were to think about the ends justifying the means, then all the years of UN PC jokes that were made of over the generations contributed to the ability to recognize and change things in our society... and not visa versa in that they jokes desensitized us...

Inland waterways? No drinking.
Coastal within 100 miles of a metro? No Drinking
Coastal 100+ miles from a metro? Drink in moderation
On Passage more than a day from either port? You're an adult - Monitor yourself.
On passage 5 days or more? Wear a harness and attach a Tequila IV drip - the party is on.

In the final analysis, I think the rule is: Are you capable of acting responsibly or not? As a general rule, I don't even casually entertain a drinking environment where folks can't control themselves. Land or sea is pretty irrelevant to that equation.

Springbok… I think I am the one first guilty of turning this thread into a Bartender’s Guide, but anyone who has ever had the responsibility of taking their loved ones and guests to sea … knows that it was meant… tongue in cheek!

I actually drink very little as I am basically a control freak and need to always be in control (of myself and the situation on the water).

Anyone who takes this banter as a guideline to cruising practices is… as the OP admitted… naive.

Blaming leg amputations on alcohol makes as much sense as laying the blame of a shooting… on the gun.

Racing mentality and the drinking mindset of weekend amateurs is responsible and they are not what this Forum is all about.

Your comments are not a valid description of anyone serious about the sport or lifestyle.

We are just having some fun about the odd time we let our hair down and I believe that ....those with drinking problems take them along, wherever they go and that direction is usually downhill.

Cheers!

Unless after a bottle of absinthe you turn into a character from the Wizard Of Oz, you are going to find that houses are even harder to move when the neighbours piss you off. It is so great now that I can drop an anchor in a unoccupied bay and sit back and enjoy that bottle of red in peace.

Good answer. It's rare for me even to pop a tin underway, because a) I want there to be NO QUESTION about my sobriety should I run a canoe down...oops...and b) I don't want to feel like I need to take a slash when I'm concentrating on docking in a cross-wind.

By the way, yours is not the only "sober-positive" comment I've heard from an Aussie. I think the rep your country has as a nation of boozers is probably overstated. I never saw a drunk in Ireland, but I've sure seen plenty in Scotland, Canada, the U.S., England and France. And yet Ireland is supposed to be full of alcoholics.

Re: Intoxicated

One of my little pleasures here at CF is to watch a thread drift and drift and drift, till it is on the rocks.

On the rocks! pour me a double!

Re: Intoxicated

An interesting chart:Alcohol: Drink up | The Economist

Aussies drink only slightly more than Americans. Can't say the same for the Irish, however.
