    onboard coffee??

    It does beg the question: how did they determine that civet-shit coffee was good, the first time? Are there other civet-shit precedents? Never mind, I’ll Google it

    Not sure the gender, looks male, but this ink is incredible, regardless

    When you get back to it, try ‘chapati’ (roti) and/or ‘naan’

    Madame has her Aeropress with a stainless filter. No paper, just the puck. Store bought coffee, she likes the Cuban stuff like Bustelo. The kettle just boils water, so no flavoring issues. If there were more than one cup of coffee/day consumed, there would be either a steel press or a cone with a reusable cloth or metal filter

    How to stop block from scrathing deck

    Don’t be surprised if the webbing binds. If I’m understanding you, there is texture on the deck and now you have added texture to the block. If this happens, try a softer/finer texture webbing. There is such a thing as Dyneema webbing, might work in that case. Wait... wonder if you could use PTFE sheet and cover the block in the same way you’ve done here?

    How to stop block from scrathing deck

    Sorry I wasn’t clear. This sheet has a coating which allows adhesive to adhere to it. I just happened to have the D795 around; LifeSeal, 4200, whatever, would work. My application is to keep my constrictor clutches from binding, and it’s been on for something like 3-4 years. That said, the covers for the clutches do happen to also cover the sheet.

    Teflon sheet with adhesive backing @ McMaster-Carr, I also used Dow 795 to glue it to my deck.

    Lewmar Or Harken Winches?

    Another vote for Andersen winches. When I bought the boat, her original 1992 Andersens were caked with probably the original grease and green with corrosion, yet they still ran fairly smoothly. After rebuild, and kits are readily available, and proper lube etc they are good as ever. Tip: take a cardboard box, cut a winch-sized hole in the bottom, and put over the winch when you disassemble. Keeps the mess and bits contained. Also I find that ‘reel butter’ fishing reel lube is good for the pawls and bearings, and either Phil bike grease or Superlube for the main assembly

    Tea Anarchy

    Pictured are my lazy-man’s masala chai but you can make from scratch. Mamri tea isn’t optional IMO https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/masala-chai-recipe-masala-tea/ Oh btw it’s “rooibos” for the ZA bush tea

    Low friction ring works but it will still bang the deck noisily . I’ve been known to cut apart neoprene beer coozies and use those as pads

    Our Daily Bread...

    That is pretty much Madame’s typical cornbread. She always adds fatback/bacon/sausage, and she will use hominy corn in the batter. We on a boat and she cooks what we have around. Although we did leave the cast iron at home, she gets similar results with the Cuisinart travel set. It’s all about preheat the pan for that crust
