REALLY new to this

Welcome to the www of sailing. You may want to check the wattage that the coffee pot uses first(1200?), because, the inverters that use cig plugs rarly go over 300 watts. to buy an inverter that would fit your needs may cost several boat units,and new heavy group 27 batterys.My recomendation is go to kmark (while you still can) and buy a 10 cup perculator ($20)and use the stove on board or get one of the small 1 burner propane stoves $40 and have fun.. Also consider a magma grill. I swear by mine.If you ever run out of propane you can always use dry wood or store some charchol aboard in 1 gallon ziplocks.dont forget the lighter fluid
