By the way, Pete, your inclusion of whiskey in the fuel
list isn't so crazy...when I first worked on the
Natchez in the mid 80s, the harbor tugboats would tie
up near us when there was a stiff on-shore wind. They
knew that our weak bowthruster might not get us out off
the dock. So when we needed help, one would sidle up to
us, pull us out, and a bottle of Jack Daniels was
promptly transfered to the tugboat from the Natchez
bar. (Had we called their company hq for help, it would
have cost us $300 or so). I haven't seen that done in
a decade at least............
