Re: Important boat stuff you forget

I forgot the Admiral. We had some friends aboard so it was a full load, I thought she was down below, but had actually gone back to the car. I was half way down the channel when I realized she wasn't onboard. Won't make that mistake again. Always check to make sure all the crew is onboard before you leave.

Phone charger, especially if your are going to overnight. I finally just bought another one to leave on the boat. Also, lots of lotion and lip balm.

Ron, I bet that's the kind of mistake you a) only make ONCE and b) never live down!

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

It sucks when you start brewing that morning coffee and your realize you forgot to pick up half and half on the way to the boat (powdered stuff is not an option).

We found a store that sells Mini Moos, the little individual creamers. They'll keep for a while in the fridge and it saves buying a half and half every weekend.

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

It took two weeks for the bruised soles of my feet to recover after leaping from the rail of the sailboat onto the plywood floor of the Avon as it was drifting away at the mooring. Oops! I haven't forgotten to tie it to the boat since!

Mini Moos are UHT processed half-and-half. They are shelf stable and will last six to nine months without refrigeration. After a couple of weeks you should shake them hard to remix the milk solids that precipitate out.

I did this for a 3 day trip, very depressing.

Since then I always make sure we have cans of evaporated or condensed milk in the locker. They last for ever and taste just as good.
