Al and Dirk Pitt came to Nigeria to find the Ironclad Battleship. One day, Al was playing football with some children, and then he dropped the football and it rolled into the cave. Al followed it and found a painting of the Ironclad Battleship. Then he brought Dirk Pitt into the cave.

Al: Hey, I am not paying off the tequila on a picture, okay? Ship of the desert's a camel. It's not an ironclad battleship. I mean, there is no way that that could get across the desert.

What is the meaning of "paying off the tequila on a picture"?
