Earl did you ever make apple jack? Our cook, Bill Knapp, confiscated somehow some dried apples, sugar and yeast from the chow hall. We mixed all that with water in our wooden life raft keg. Let it ferment for about two weeks or more in the hot sun. We had some pretty good apple jack. We saved it until we were getting new engines at Green Island. The motormacs were all busy but the rest of us crew went to our tent on the base and started drinking that stuff along with some beer rations we had saved. Well we didn't even get back to the boat that night. When we showed up the next day at the boat Mr. McLane chewed our butts out really good. Said there was no one to move the boat from the dock to the bouy that night. However he didn't give us any extra duty. I guess because there were too many of us.
