NEW YORK, March 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SOMEWHERE ON THE SEVEN SEAS -- A person (or maybe it was me) once said that behind every captain is an even better crew. And it's always been my crew who makes my ship the partying-ist boat on the seven seas.
Recently, a smart group of environmental researchers looking for a suitable name for a ship had the amazing idea to ask the Internet for submissions! Supporters of good times around the world are rallying behind a moniker that embraces all that it means to forget about the 9 to 5 grind, jump aboard the party ship, and channel your inner Captain—Boaty McBoatface.
Boaty McBoatface reminds me of my crew—legal drinking aged adventure-seekers who aren't afraid to revel in life's greatest satisfactions in the name of unforgettable fun. For this reason, I'm jumping aboard and publicly supporting Boaty McBoatface, and this I promise: If Boaty McBoatface takes the title, I'll offer to hire an artist to draw my face on the boat, and I'll provide my flag under which it can sail—a flag that will always bring the ship and its mates a shipload of fun and remind them to always celebrate responsibly.
Captains and crewmembers everywhere, join me as I cast my vote in support of the most #FullCaptain name ever to take to the high seas—Boaty McBoatface.
In the name of fun, always,
We all come up with great ideas every now and then, and Captain Morgan is here to support the best of them. When casting your vote for Boaty McBoatface and going #FullCaptain, always remember to do so responsibly.
