Air conditioning, of course.

In another thread Faster reckoned our cockpit looked civilised. Compared to Sequitor I'm having my doubts and I must say that Moonglow's haul makes me ashamed to admit that I am not a fisherman by any stretch. Nonetheless prawns and oysters washed down with a nice Italian Pinot Grigio was a treat.

We got the food from a passing boat that does the rounds of the area we were anchored in. Freshly shucked Sydney Rock oysters and local prawns (shrimp for you lot) with a dill mayonaisse. If you have never eaten fresh Sydney Rocks you have missed possibly the best oyster on the planet. They are small but beautifully sweet. Anything more than a squeeze of lemon or lime is an act of heresy.

wherever did the notion of onboard meals needing to look like a 'dogs breakfast' come from? I understand the reasons for your daily nutrition intake aboard a race team's vessle to have this appearance. However, most cruising couples are not traversing the seas in that manner. The meals pictured here are not technically difficult cooking. Creativity, planning,(forethought) a basic knowledge of cooking, and a desire to share with your partner yet one more aspect of your time together is all that's required. Granted Sequiter has a vast amount of stowage and power capabilities. I believe, though, that nutritious, delicious, beautiful meals are doable for anyone who has the interest.

Thumbs up This an enjoyable thread to read....

Some tips from my galley experience in the Pacific Northwest.....

On smaller boats the butane stove is very convenient and the most affordable. The same stoves that are $40 or more at marine stores are $13 at Asian groceries. For $30 you can find then with polished stainless cabinets. At the west coast chains '99 Ranch Markets' and 'H Mart' you can buy a 4pack of the 8oz butane cans for $5, the price of a single can at marine stores. Butane is safer than propane as it does not settle low.

Criossants, fresh or stale, make great french toast. Just slice in half first.

Potatoes quartered lengthwise and sprayed with olive oil grill nicely along with your morning sausages.

See my new thread for eating Northwest kelp leaves.
