Has anyone actually been on this boat, and do they have a tale to tell?

Here we go.. http://www.canberralakecruises.com.au/partycharters.html

This is ‘The Pirate Party Boat’ service. Looks like a good setup, surprised I havent heard more about it before.

On a semi-related topic, Ive always wondered what the laws are regarding boats on the lakes? I was under the impression that only electric powered boats were allowed on the lake. During Skyfire I noticed a lot of boats on the lake too, some of which seemed to be engine-powered. While I understand that individual companies such as the ferry or a party boat, could get permission to operate, how does this apply to the general public?

The other boats are probably Police, SES and the company that controls the fireworks.

we had our last 3 xmas parties on it. best time ever! possibly because of the company on said boat… RIP my old place of employment. kareoke, a pole(!) and they will cook the meat you bring on, and you supply the salads etc.

they also offer ‘adult’ cruises apparently, and by the look of the ‘ladies’ who for some reason where on our last cruise for the hell of it, you would need several vodka slushies (which you can bring the ingredients for and they make them) to even consider them somewhat attractive and want to see their ‘goods’.

I booked a Christmas party for about 20 people on that Pirate Boat once, and I would never recommend it to anyone. The people attending to our function and driving the boat were extraordinarily rude, the welcome and service was dreadful and while the catering by an outside company they recommended was not too bad, the hot food was unfortunately cold by the time the boat staff had advised us that it was ready for consumption. And all the while, you’re trapped on a boat, having a a not-so-great time for four or five hours. At least if it’s a bad restaurant or club, you’re free to leave. We couldn’t wait to get off the boat.

My friend had her 40th on it a couple of years ago, we dressed up like cops and robbers and had an absolute wicked time. Not badly priced either for full satisfaction from the crowd and the freedom and privacy to be yourselves.

Her only complaint was that she couldn’t invite all her friends, it has limits of course.

Yes, a friend had a 30th on it on the night we beat the Kiwis in the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

Just remember, the taaaawlets are for number ones only.
