    What's Cruising to you?

    Cruising is fixing things in beautiful places. Not sure of who was the original creator of that phrase but they were spot on.

    Thanks! She’s a good one. And the best part is she can’t get enough of sailing. A perfect companion. Now if she would just varnish that toe rail ... hmmm

    Fleming Auxiliary Rudder Windvane

    I have a Fleming Minor on my boat. To keep the rudder from swinging, all you have to do is pull out your sail from the top of the unit. Just my opinion but you really only want to use this beautiful piece of equipment until you will be blue water sailing and not short tacking or making any course changes.

    Well... the boat was waaay in the back corner of the yard after being abandoned for 5 years. So I was the last to be launched. Well worth the wait !

    Canned Meat Anarchy

    I take one of these and combine it with the contents of a box of macaroni and cheese. Its incredibly good. The channa masala takes the place of milk and butter that you would ordinarily add to the Mac and cheese. Annies cheddar is usually what I use. Add a little broccoli to the pasta a few minutes before its done cooking for added points. To keep this thread on topic, a can of chicken would also work for the combination.

    onboard coffee??

    I swear by Starbucks via instant coffee on my boat. Heat up some water and pour it in a mug and dump in a stick of Via.... stir it a bit and presto.... Pretty damn good coffee.
