Sam the Shanty Man Fish and Chip Supper

Once again Sam the Shanty Man will mould the most unlikely bunch of landlubbers into a crew of salty sea dogs fit to grace any of the leaky old tubs they dare to call sailing boats. Sam will lead you in the shanty to raise the anchor at the outset of the voyage right through to finally pumping her dry when you finally sail home again. Unlike the sailormen of old he will guarantee to return you to your loved ones fit and well and with most of your teeth intact.
