I think we have a winner.

Bet you never forget that day Cam, or the look your wife gave you when she heard the splash. "What was that? Don't tell me, I don't want to know."

Cam-

At least your wife was aboard and witnessed it...otherwise the explanation would have sounded really weak... and you probably wouldn't be here today..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Dawg et. al. I'm glad you all enjoyed envisioning the aftermath! ...But the Dawg wins the prize for best response!! Just be glad you weren't the one who spent an hour overboard in the muck trying to find it!! All in all it was a memorable 4th of July including the fireworks on board!!

Whoa there Bluebottle. Back right on up there, until you get to "12v cord". You have a 12v espresso machine ? Tell me, tell me, tell me. Well, you HAD a 12v volt espresso machine anyway. Where did you get it ? What brand ?

It was bought in 2001, and I believe the brand was Tefal, or AEG..not sure...

It was bought at a camping fair here in Lisbon....

Cheers mate,
If it made decent coffee what a great thing. Best I've ever come up with for a boat are those Italian stove top things but to my mind they don't make as flavoursome a cup of espresso as the real deal. Nothing else comes close. Perculators and plungers simply do not give a good enough result. The search begins.
