Maybe the inside is steel, but the casing is plastic fantastic. But I don't worry about lightning. The Benny dealer installed one of those magical fuzzy brushes on my masthead that wards off the bad energy.

The headset walkie-talkies to use when docking and picking up moorings. They stink in quality lots of static even when only 10 feet apart and they look silly. Never ever used them except to test.

Nice, right! It makes any ol' tub look like it's ready for The Horn. Even a lake boat like the Smacktanic.

(It's the Weems & Plath "Nautilus", if you were serious. Cheapest on Defender.com)

Judging by the boat in your avatar, I think you'd need something with a long distance plan!

Looks like a combination barometer and heel indicator. Looks cool. Looks expensive.

Yeah, we tried one of those on Abracadabra. Slower than molasses in winter. Then blew the fuse. So I put a slightly larger fuse in, with the panel out so I could feel the wires back there. Still slower than molasses in winter and the wiring got uncomfortably hot. It went back to WM.

I guess we'll just have to get that scary pressurized alcohol stove going if we're ever going to cruise.

Ooh, I'm glad to say, Lifesling, man-overboard pole, big honkin' advanced first aid kit, safety flares, lots of meds, all in the class of stuff you gotta have and hope you never need.

Getting back to the serious side of the question, the only things I can think of that we regret buying in retrospect are Grundig Yachtboy SSB (quality so awful that we could never hear the weather reports, so ended up using internet - more available than we expected - or local AM radio - free - or relays from various sources - again, free) and mesh tents to put over food dishes on the table at potlucks and picnics (if it was that buggy we stayed in anyway). Sadly, our grill also falls in this category (waving at CD) - it was so f-ing cold and windy all winter that we wanted the oven heat in the cabin!

Tempest,

I too fell into the 12 volt coffeemaker. Slow isnt the word. I only use it when I am making coffee for after dinner for a group and then I start it 35 minutes before I fire the entree.

Eryka....I am like CD..I would be losts without my grill. 80% of our meals come off of that. I even bought the low pressure valve and hose to T it off of one of my two propane tanks so I wouldnt have to carry the little "bombs" on board. Actually this was one of my best improvements. Makes grilling a snap and easy. I have also found it never blows out since I stop using the bombs.

Dave
