Re: Important boat stuff you forget

Ran out of white wine vinegar for the salad.

Backstory: CalebD helped me get rid of headliner mold a few weeks earlier. We actually had some left, but I marked the bottle "mold removal only".

---

Forgot to move some beers from the "pantry" (storage under forward bunk) to the fridge. Had to put a couple in the freezer and wait a bit.

---

My daughter had 3 of her friends on board a couple weeks ago. They made pancakes for breakfast. We had almost no syrup on board. Had to make due with less syrup and extra butter.

Regards,
Brad

Forgetting coffee is a biggie, for me.

Nothing like the first cup of coffee, sitting at anchor, when you first get up, and are watching the sun come up.

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

After forgetting the coffee, we since keep an emergency stash of the Starbucks VIA instant packets aboard...they're small, keep a long time, and no one suffers withdrawal.

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

One word - Checklists.

One for loading the boat, one for readying to leave the dock and one for shutting the boat down after docking.

Without them, it's amazing how many seacocks get left open, shore cords left plugged in when leaving etc. etc.

There is too much for most of us to remember - that's why they are mandatory for aircraft.

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

Along the same lines...

On the morning after the first night spent on the boat in the water, I rolled out of bed early on a gorgeous, misty gray morning. Trusty GS dog by my side. All is quiet... serene...

Back pack stove for coffee.... check...
Fresh water for coffee .... check....
Nice solid mug, diner-style, for coffee.... check.....
French press, for coffee..... check..
Coffee for coffee ...... @#$@#%%#@#$@#$@#$@@#$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

True. I made shrimp jambalaya the night before, remembered stuff for scrambled egg/veggie omelet, all the necessary food and dishes for the dog, not not even a single coffee bean.

argggghhhhh

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

As the OP ........................ I have NEVER forgotten or run out of coffee on the boat. Coffee just doesn't fall into the "important boat stuff you forget" world. If you are forgetting coffee you have a lot of work to do and I fear for what else you must be forgetting to take to the boat.

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

Forgot our Passports in the car in Georgia and didn't discover it until we were about to clear in to the Bahamas at Green Turtle Cay. We had our birth certificates and photo ID so we were able to clear into the Bahamas but that still left us with the problem of getting back in the US.

We eventually got the Passports and were able to get back into the US but it's not something I recommend.

Re: Important boat stuff you forget

hot sauce

can fix many a "what's on the boat" meal as I was disappointed to find out last week when I looked for it and found out it wasn't on the boat
