Top Definition
A person who perceives him/herself as a savvy sailor and seafarer when in reality they have very little knowledge of the water. Mainly working for little to no pay pulling lines on big remakes of historic sailing vessels for the pleasure of tourists.

Enjoy Tom Waits, carharts, rum, and anchor tattoos- and do not seem to understand that being called a “Schooner Bum” is indeed an insult and implies your inability to get a real job.

Dave - "Because Joe, she's a schooner bum."
