So – they’ve got plenty of table setups but no radar. Sounds like a fun job.

Who needs radar. Prolly never leave the ICW. Wear the stripes like you mean it, don’t get mustard stains on your white shirt and smile for the milfs who think you might be a good catch. There are worse fates.although it’s hard to think of any… :wink:

Looks like a high end french whorehouse.


I don’t think this one is even meant to leave the dock, much less the ICW.

Was marked for a bow thruster. Maybe to swap sides at the dock? Or just riverboat chic?

I worked part-time as a relief captain on a large dinner cruise vessel on the east coast 1990-1992. They wanted you to look like the captain of the Loveboat, but paid you like the captain of the Minnow.


After my brief stint on yachts and a casino cruise ship, this popped into my head from my experiences. :joy:
