How serendipitous. I have literally just fallen off a catamaran that did a full Antigua circumnavigation, and I must admit to the consumption of a huge amount of rum. Not sure if I'll make dinner tonight! Ain't life a Bitch? Bibs/Laura - wish you were here...

Don't buy the $50 DVD of that tour, I'll lend your ours! What a waste of cash!

The actual tour itself though is magical, we were on the Excellent. Did you enjoy lunch on the deserted island?

Enjoy, lucky fcuker!

Hehehe. Yes, lunch on Green Island. Actually, I was lunch for a large hungry fish, and I have the bite mark to prove it.

Right. OK, Sparksters, so what's up with the "been in St. John's for 5 days" remark on another thread? Mechanical delay? Or have you finally mastered the art of quantum superposition. The world awaits... :)

Nah, nothing exotic. Turns out I'm in the wrong St Johns! I knew I shoulda taken that right turn at Bermuda.

Dummy me :blush: [slaps forehead with palm of hand]. Completely missed that geographical "twin city" reference. Thanks for letting me down gently.

And here's the song.......!!

1. Fifteen men on a dead man's chest

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

Drink and the devil had done for the rest

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

The mate was fixed by the bosun's pike

The bosun brained with a marlinspike

And cookey's throat was marked belike

It had been gripped by fingers ten;

And there they lay, all good dead men

Like break o'day in a boozing ken

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

2. Fifteen men of the whole ship's list

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Dead and be damned and the rest gone whist!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

The skipper lay with his nob in gore

Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore

And the scullion he was stabbed times four

And there they lay, and the soggy skies

Dripped down in up-staring eyes

In murk sunset and foul sunrise

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

3. Fifteen men of 'em stiff and stark

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Ten of the crew had the murder mark!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead

Or a yawing hole in a battered head

And the scuppers' glut with a rotting red

And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes

Looking up at paradise

All souls bound just contrawise

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

4. Fifteen men of 'em good and true

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Ev'ry man jack could ha' sailed with Old Pew,

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

There was chest on chest of Spanish gold

With a ton of plate in the middle hold

And the cabins riot of stuff untold,

And they lay there that took the plum

With sightless glare and their lips struck dumb

While we shared all by the rule of thumb,

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

5. More was seen through a sternlight screen

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

Chartings undoubt where a woman had been

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

'Twas a flimsy shift on a bunker cot

With a dirk slit sheer through the bosom spot

And the lace stiff dry in a purplish blot

Oh was she wench or some shudderin' maid

That dared the knife and took the blade

By God! she had stuff for a plucky jade

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

6. Fifteen men on a dead man's chest

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum

Drink and the devil had done for the rest

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

We wrapped 'em all in a mains'l tight

With twice ten turns of a hawser's bight

And we heaved 'em over and out of sight,

With a Yo-Heave-Ho! and a fare-you-well

And a sudden plunge in the sullen swell

Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell,

Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

Old-fashioned for me, matey! I am soooooo bungalowed. Supping an enormous G&T prior to a rather posh dinner, been on the English Harbour all day, and hoping I don't make too much of a cock of myself tonight...

Hopefully next year, my friend, and I'm sure the run will flow just as freely!

Looks like Tropical Storm Rafael is just about to hammer the crap out of us. Just had word from Barbados that it's pretty rough, so looking forward to the show. From the bar, natch.

Has the team joined you at the bar to discuss their misfortune, and the finer points of rum imbibement? :lol:

You won't believe this, but they're staying at the adjacent resort, and I met 2 of them yesterday!
