Adjective for something that definitely wasn't lame, but not quite "hot". In other words, slightly below being hot, therefore warm, like a nice pair of mittens.
"How were things at the club last night?"

"Plenty to drink, but the music was no good. I guess shit was mittens."

Yacht rock is cheesy pop rock music from the 80s and 90s. Artists like Michael McDonald, Kenny G, Stevie Nicks, Toto and a host of other similar bands comprise artists who performed this music. Think of dudes in their 50s cruising the harbor and snorting cocaine on their yachts blasting Kenny G and you will be able to picture those who enjoy yacht rock
I saw Billy's dad out in Newport Beach the other day cranking out some yacht rock. It made me want to vomit a shade of teal blue puke
