Geocache Description:

Frem til 30. juni 1999 sejlede de berømte "spritbåde" mellem Danmark og Tyskland. Denne cache er et opråb til de rette aktører om at genstarte denne fortrinlige service!

Up to June 30th 1999 duty free ferries sailed between Germany and Denmark. This cache is a callout to reinstate this excellent service!

Spritbåden Feodora

Dansk:


Spritbådene sejlede fra de fleste sønderjydske havne til tyske havne ikke langt væk. Typisk var der tale om kun lige at lægge til kaj i få minutter, og så blev der sejlet retur igen. Når man var i internationalt farvand blev der solgt øl, vin, spiritus og cigaretter toldfrit, hvilket var en fantastisk god forretning for spritbådene.
Forretningen var så lukrativ, at de gav tilskud til busselskaber, der fragtede personer fra andre steder i landet ned til Sønderjylland, så det var muligt at køre i bus fra Odense til Sønderborg, sejle til Tyskland, få et varmt måltid mad ombord, og blive kørt retur til Odense, for 30 kroner!
Man kunne ofte se i bybilledet når nogle kom retur til Sønderborg med spritbådene, da de så enten bar betydelige mængder alkohol i armene - eller i blodet - eller begge dele!

Indeholder fra start log og skriveredskab. VIGTIGT: Vurder de lokale forhold grundigt inden du begynder at forsøge at logge denne cache!

English:


The "Booze Boats" sailed from most harbours in Southern Jutland to German harbours not very far away. Mostly the ferries just docked long enough to unload a few passengers and then returned to sea again. When in international waters the onboard shop sold beer, wine, spirits and cigarettes duty free, which was a very profitable business for these companies.
The business was so profitable that they subsidized bus companies to bring persons to Southern Jutland so they could travel on these ferries; in the mid-90's it was possible to to take a bus in Odense, go to Sønderborg, sail across to Germany, get a hot meal onboard and be transported back to Odense for a mere 30 kroner!
When in Sønderborg, you could often easily spot those who had taken the ferries; they would usually carry a large volume of alcohol in their arms - or bloodstream - or both!

Contains a log and writing utensil. IMPORTANT: Please consider local circumstances carefully before attempting logging this cache!
