Gov. Mitt Romney's campaign toasted its top donors Wednesday aboard a 150-foot yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Islands. The floating party, hosted by a Florida developer on his yacht "Cracker Bay," was one of a dozen exclusive events meant to nurture those who have raised more than $1 million for Romney's bid.
The Cracker Bay is owned by Gary Morse, developer of the Villages retirement community. Companies controlled by Morse gave nearly $1 million to the pro-Romney Restore Our Future superPAC. Registered in the Caymans, and flying a version of the Caymans' "civil ensign" or merchant flag, the Cracker Bay has an impressive art collection and can seat 30 for dinner. More at ABC

Romney Camp Hosts Donors on Cayman Island Yacht
The yacht is owned by the owner of The Villages in Florida. Paul Ryan recently spoke there. The yacht owner pays no taxes on the yacht and check out the flag on the boat. Another thing revealed in the story is that Romney is the first nominee who declines to reveal his top bundlers.
