We knew there was a Sasquatch onboard, but we had no idea a Kraken had slipped onboard El Gato as well! We were 3 days into our first charter. Kraken, with an argument in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean over how it is pronounced (you say Toe-may-toe, I say Tom-ah-toe) is a sea beast of myth and legend, resembling a huge octopus, with tentacles that reach near and far. It is also a Caribbean spiced rum that is strong, rich, black and smooth.


And somehow it has slipped aboard, creating mischievous pranks like leaving the ice maker open overnight, putting toilet paper in our non-paper heads, and drinking all the rum overnight forcing us to go get more by seeking out local distilleries (rummeries)!

We thought Bad Boy was doing it, the Beanie Baby that daughter Chelsea blamed all bad deeds on when she was young, and we know BB is not up this level of Bad. He is onboard, but it’s not is fault.

In all seriousness, we had a blast with our friends/guests/charterers, and we loved showing them Martinique, Dominica, and Iles De Saintes, how to drive and sail El Gato, to run the dinghy, play hard, eat well, catch big fish while under sail, whale watching, snorkeling with turtles, and everyone left with huge grins and only one sunburn.

Except somehow Kraken is now a stow away that Eric, AKA Sasquatch, will find and serve up for a good meal as soon as he figures out how to squash him! Those tentacles are slippery and sneaky!

  1. Hi Eric and Annie,

    Thanks for the post. I’m going to see if I can find some, Kraken. Sounds like it is as mind altering as a Bali Hai Mai Tai.
