So my great mate Alp invited me to meet all his mates on their regular ‘boys boozing on a boat’ catch up. Captain’s of Industry they were. And what an absolutely top crew they were too. Brilliant guys, superb boat, and what a cracking night. I offered up to cook due to my invite. So this little nighttime affair became ChillaxBBQ Chef Table on a Bum Boat. A first alone on a boat for me. First time on a converted bumboat. First time for a Chef Table. First time with guys only. First time in a raging storm. First time cooking on an electric hot-plate the size of a biscuit tin. Did I pull it off? Let’s have some comments shall we;
“Great night. Awesome food, Brian. Best ever on that vessel, no doubt,” said our Host, Christian
“Brian – amazing cooking. Thanks for the feast of feasts,” said Andrew
“Brian – you are a legend. Extraordinary effort in terms of planning, preparation and sublime delivery – unforgettable,” said Mike
Happy with that. And these guys are BIG foodies. So, here comes some ‘footage’ of the event. Here comes ChillaxBBQ Chef Table on a Bum Boat.
OK, I will apologise now for the rest of the photos for ChillaxBBQ Chef Table on a Bum Boat.
It was pitch black.
I had a head-torch on.
There was a huge swell.
It was absolutely pouring with rain.
I’d had about 40 beers, 5 Gazpacho cocktails, a few neat Rums etc… Yeah, that would do it!!!
As you can see I started to revert to single platters as due to the weather the boys were all sat at the table. Easy, peasy!
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE TO SEE HOW THE RIDE HOME WENT – 8 BLOKES, ADD COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF BOOZE = KARAOKE, of course!!!
The evening and night of fun were over. A first for ChillaxBBA and a first for me too. The new amigos I met tonight were such splendid chaps, and again I cannot thank Alp enough for the invite, Christian for accepting the suggestion and Kevin, Mike, Andrew, and Oliver for being such top blokes. ChillaxBBQ Chef Table on a Bum Boat was such a fun event, despite the bloody weather. One I’ll never forget in a hurry, well maybe the last bit if the journey was a tad fuzzy haha. If ever you get the chance do one of these events yourself. Fantastic for team building, mateship, family fun. I really did – ENJOY!!!
