With all that hair on your back you'd just get waterlogged and sink. Either that or you might just attract an amorous walrus.

Us use this but they are really a bit unstable. I've seen one design that had a very flat and quite large base which may be a better alternative. I'm a bit wary of the aluminium pots.



ps - as far as I can see the Velox is the only thing that is now available. Looking at a couple of coffee freak sites they don't get a very good review. Very slow and not a lot of pressure. Maybe the stove top type is the go after all, either that or an inverter and go the whole hog. Probably need a bigger galley, ergo a bigger boat. Shite.

Upside down or not, I'm definitely screwed up at least.

I'm amazed I'm the only one to have my winch guts dance on the deck, on the way to Davy Jones locker, but am relieved to know others have had their spec's slapped off by a wayward jib sheet. Art.
