    Yes, like that.  I checked my "Passport" with names of the boats
    boarded, but the Endeavour was not on the list.  The Bounty mess was not
    as artfully staged. I don't recall hula-skirt-like decorations (aka fire
    hazards) on the lines.
    
    For extra credit did the lamps used for the "candle-light dinners" burn
    (whale?) oil or did they use tallow candles?
