    onboard coffee??

    Oh, I say go with the plumber's drill. It's already on board, and it's got the torque in spades, and on high gear that sucker will WAIL. It will GRIND some beans. You'll have the only seagoing coffee grinder that can puree a brick. The problem won't be getting the beans ground, the problem will be finding all the little pieces of coffee bean and the coffee bean dust that'll be all over the galley.

    Or you could a) marry a second wife, or b) divorce your current wife and marry a woman nicknamed "Moose" or "Diesel".

    A thermos? I speak with the authority of the entire city of coffee-drinking Seattle. Don't ever say the word "coffee" again.

    Are we(racing sailors) a culture of cheaters?

    I've never seen anyone at sea in a race deliberately cheat. On the other side, I've never heard an accusation of cheating leveled by anyone who actually knows the rules.

    The British seem to like wet boats. I've noticed that before. Almost like they don't feel like they're sailing unless their hair is wet.

    I'd be willing to bet that the first guy who tried raw oysters was in a desperate, life & death fight with starvation. I mean, wouldn't you pretty much have to be?

    I've had bad coffee from a Starbuck's in London.

    onboard coffee??

    It's far enough out of focus that I have no idea what it is. I've never seen anything like it, on any continent.

    Yeah, there's an argument for convenience.

    onboard coffee??

    Well, I've had coffee that apparently tasted like mud made with week old camel piss. I've often wondered what changes during that first, critical week. (I've also wondered who compared the two, and how many samples it took, but I try to stop wondering, or at least wonder about something else before that point. Down that road lies madness. What about, to start alphabetically, aardvark piss? And does the guy who made it to C really have any credibility? Is he from Seattle? Does he really know coffee?)

    There's much cheaper lead elsewhere.

    We have exactly that machine, but it doesn't have a lever between the shot glasses. It would frighten everyone in the same anchorage. I want one!

    I see. The rules are different for your family. How average.
