Willie's mirage

I'm sure the skipper of the bark Wanderer knows Willie always needs a drink. But if this isn't a mirage then Willie is the Aqua-man of aquatic birds - we saw him previously getting a ride back to his boat from a mollymauk, and here's yet another one, this time providing table service... uh rowboat service.

I haven't found a direct definition of "ryers of Jamaicy" but it seems a sure bet that it means Jamaican rum. Or as Romance of a Rogue says:
...old as I be, I can drink as much Jamaicy on a steady leg as any man in these parts...
