I would buy a City Stick & "LIMP" going aboard ship.

"If you have been looking for a classy walking stick that's just at home at the opera as it is on a stroll through the urban jungle, look no further. Our new City Stick fits in at just about any social situation and is just as functional as it is good looking. Its glossy black shaft is made out of eleven layers of fiberglass and, in our horrific impact tests, proved to be unbreakable. For eye appeal, it's topped with a mirror polished "head" made of 300 series stainless steel that's highly resistant to rusting and just about begs for your custom engraving. To keep you from slipping on the mean streets and cracked sidewalks, each City Stick is capped with a thick rubber ferrule that looks good and gives excellent traction."
