    What's The Attraction To Sheltered Cockpits?

    I'm going to guess it's the shelter.

    onboard coffee??

    In general a French press makes better coffee than a percolator, but things are different when you're on a boat. I love the coffee from me cheap little aluminum percolator when on the boat. I've tried it at home and the coffee is dreck. The aeropress makes even better coffee than a French press, but only one cup and I drink more than that. So I'd go with a percolator or metal French press, depending on how picky you are.

    Need help day dreaming about a boat....

    She's been on the hard for 3 seasons and has some issues • Water stains on teak panels around the portlights • Aft cabin has some water leaks and resultant water stains on panels, flooring and headliner • sails and rigging are at least 10 years old

    It's ugly, but I see the point of it. The "side decks" on my Catalina 22 are fecking useless, I always walk forward on the cabin top anyway. Why not extend the cabin all the way to the edge?

    Lapworth had one as his personal boat. 'Nuff said. Pretty big difference between the drawing and the picture with that dodger upon a dodger layer cake thing going on.
  8. Ahhh, dammit! And it's another small boat owner from Minneapolis who ratted me out to them. Can't trust anyone these days.
  9. I'm looking at chartering out of La Paz this winter and that looks like many of the pictures I've been looking at.
  10. I didn't open it, I was afraid it might be contagious.
  11. At least that's how it looks from these two consecutive threads....
