We mix our with orange juice or coconut juice, plenty of ice, never before 3 pm and not while underway.
Cost $1.00 a 1 liter bottle.
Works for me.
ok I want part of this...if I can find a free reflux still.

Re: Intoxicated

A reflux still has a tall column that the evaporated alcohol rises up and cools then falls through a series of catchments called plates or trays and is re-evaporated many times. The most volatile gas (purest alcohol) makes it out to a cooling tube and into the moonshine jug where it contibutes to people doing silly things whilst wearing funny hats.

Re: Intoxicated

To answer the OP: I think everyone would agree there is quite a bit of drinking and boating on charter boats. For most people that is a vacation, booze seems to go along...

Not sure to the extent of drinking while boating with liveaboards. But once you're anchored or docked securely, who cares what people do really.

Whether more sailors drink overall more or less than other sporting demographics is moot and not worth the debate IMO.
