Irish Ingenuity

Sean Jamieson - owner of The Gondola Company and dedicated Irishman sent me this and I immediately scrapped my original plan for a St. Patrick's Day post.
What we're looking at here, in case you haven't noticed it yet, is a "different kind of canon".  Yeah, that's what we'll call it.  The canon is the little brass vase that rests on the crest of the bow deck, and often holds a flower or a flag.
Leave it to Sean to replace the brass flower holder with a much more Irish alternative:


Yes, a Jameson bottle (which I'm sure Sean dedicated himself to emptying first), that holds an arrangement of appropriately green flowers.
Nice job, Sean!
I think I need to have one of these for each of my boats...
I'd better start "emptying" some bottles right away.
