Comments on the competition
My clue 40 was actually:

"The ship has no rumpled sail or speed of fare, kept from the port"
-> "The ship has no rum; plastered sailors, peed off, are kept from the port"

but an internet problem near the deadline meant what was submitted was a mid-edit combo of two drafts. Apologies to the judges for the screw up. It wouldn't have troubled the excellent 21, 37, and 8 anyway.
