The final plank to be fixed to a hull is commonly called the Whiskey Plank.
So named because a tot or two of Whiskey was often poured to celebrate this milestone.
Never one to shun tradition I thought I would keep up this practice by breaking the seal on
one of my Christmas Presents. Maybe invite a few friends round.
However once I got things in perspective I realised it was better to celebrate on my own.
And that reminded me of one of the very best Father Ted sketches.
