Rumrunners, Moonshiners and Bootleggers
Currently watching "Rumrunners, Moonshiners and Bootleggers" on History Channel. Enjoy seeing Gary Regan telling stories. My favorite part is when they cover Capt. Bill McCoy ("The Real McCoy") and his off-shore "Rum Row". It was a floatilla of ships hauling massive amounts of Bahamian RUM that offloaded onto "contact boats" to run the spirits to shore. McCoy, and others, efforts forced the rapid expansion of the US Coast Guard. Fun!
