Rum Punch
The famous ‘Rum Punch’ is a Gaff Rig Sandlighter. A basic, fundamental, most ancient design in working sail boats.
George took a different path with his Sandlighter. He hauls tourist.
And here he is passing the time while they snorkel Mexico Rocks.

George is relaxing, you will notice if you zoom in.
3000 years ago in Egypt on the Nile they where called Feluccas.
exactly the same design and for much the same purpose
