Do you have associations with the term “banana boat,” like maybe a song . . . this one?  I’ll bet you’ve sung along.

Get my drift?   Maybe not yet?

I’m no good judge of how common the word “platanos” is in English because it’s been in my vocabulary for too long.

Painted battleship gray and sporting a name like platanos might be considered subterfuge . . . ,

a crude oil carrier getting named as “plantains” . . .  well, bananas.  I know banana boats and this is not a banana boat, even if it comes from that banana-producing area called Point Tupper, right, Jack?

I’m pushing it here, but maybe port of registry should say “maduro,” at least that’s my favorite format.  Maybe the fleet mate is called “papa criolla”?
