Scotch Mist II - sunset cruise Lahaina

Double Scotch and water

The Penn and Teller of the seafaring world, Tonyy* (yes, with two y’s) and Turk led our sunset sail out of Lahaina for a two hour excursion. Turk mutely twirled the wheel as Tonyy entertained us with tales from his youth as a fisherman up in Alaska and the crazy antics that followed in Vegas once he got paid, all the while making sure the champagne and beer were always flowing (booze included – yay!)

The Scotch Mist II held about 25 and there were only six of us, so it was like having a private charter, giving Bubba the opportunity to raise the sail and me a chance to steer the boat after an affirmative nod from Turk.

We listened to the hilarity that was Tonyy then made our way to the bow for a little alone time. We leaned into each other - salty, barefoot, fuzzy-headed – as the tangible definition of “honeymoon” wrapped around our shoulders...just another day in paradise.

*Tonyy was a highlight to our trip, not only in personality, but as a valuable resource for restaurant recommendations. Always listen to the locals.
