Sailors v. Powerboaters

As the U.S. Sailboat Show enters its last day, the U.S. Powerboat Show will come into the harbor to take it’s place.  I asked an Annapolis bartender if there was a difference between the Sailboat clientele (Sailors) and the Powerboaters.  He said that the Sailors normally drank rum, gin, or flavored vodka, while the Power guys favored bourbon and single malt whiskys.  Interesting distinction.  Maybe because the sailboats tend to cruise the Caribbean more where there are favorable winds, and rum is cheap and plentiful.  Clearly more research is needed.
