Cooking offshore

I love the pressure cooker for keeping stew in the pot and using a little less propane.

sailing south from ensenada to mazatlan was fun and at some points wild ride--- winds off cabo were 60 kts from nw-- wow-- we used only reefed jib n mizzensails and clocked 8 kts!!! cooking was less than optimal and i kept spilling the coffee everywhere..LOL... but got it done and enjoyed the sailing---- arrived in mazatlan with 3 gallons of diesel remaining in tank, and broken alternator mount bolts..LOL... jury rigging ddoes work. will prolly go to marina mazatlan for hurrycame season, at his point as i can get repairs done effectively there.
my only complaint, if that--is not being able to catch a dorado(or anything) between cabo and mazatlan-- winds disappeared and fishies were hiding under glassy seas.

No, not at all.

Are you kidding me????????????

[QUOTE=seagypsytexas;737613]My names James, i have in my possesion a set of building plans for the 29' cutter drawn by PAUL GARTSIDE. I intend to build her like the Famous PARDEY'S boat on the intereior layout and deck layout. I am looking for a female that has wooden boatbuilding skills or just a good passion for wooden sailing craft. No experiance is needed, just a passion for wooden sailboats and cruising, as i would also need a crew as well. If this sounds good to you and want to have a lot of fun building a boat and then have a lot of fun sailing to far away places, then i need you. I am planning on building her in arkansas and trucking her to texas for the launch. We will begin sea trials in the gulf of mexico. When sea trials have been complete, we will set sail for the carribian or the south pacific.
So if this sounds good to you, i will be happy to talk with you about. Also maybe if you have a sister or friend that would like to go as well, that would be ok. All interested females may contact me on this site and allso call me....479-774-2064 EMAIL ......seagypsy2012@gmail.com
THANKYOU VERY MUCH AND .......HAPPY SAILING !!!...[/QUOTE]

Your kidding right? Are you giving 50% ownership of the vessel for all her woodworking skills? Can you correctly spell "carribian"??? I can't think of anyone except maybe "Daisy Duke" who might want to join you. Go to "match.com" YUK

carol. I know the feeling, sailing alone on my Non Such 36 coming back north from the Bahamas I had two storms offshore which kept me up 48 hrs twice. for a sailor in his sixties it was exhaustion and no more single handling sailing for me. fortunately the Non Such is a very strong boat and even with two reefs in the gulf I could not slow her down over 9 kts for many hours with no moon. I also had problems on the ICW with 5ft 7 draft, because there are many area's not dredged because of cutbacks. I also have a centurion 32 sloop that is a great boat, but the non such is like a condo with all the equipment, 2 gen sets, water maker . Alt of stuff to take care of. Will have to decide what boat to use to go back to Keys and Exumas next season. I left Newport RI early in Oct. My insurance will not cover me 100 miles away from US no matter what month it is. Boats now in the beaufort NC where I have a house for sale. Newport this week visiting children and grandchildren. Don Clare SV Trinity

I cooked for only two. We had a thing called a sea swing. It is a small gimbaled pot with a small propane can on the bottom for fuel.

When it really blows it's great. The little pot goes all the way down in a bracket. That's usually the time for spaghetti. Boil it up and put can of clam sauce over the top and a little parmesan cheese. Goes down great when it's really blowing out.

At the start of this thread was a great sailing story. Yes, she could have looked at a chart, but did you understand that it was getting dark and she had little time? That's when mistakes happen. Also when it's dark nothing looks the same and it can really mess you up.

I was on Lake Erie, just as the light was giving out trying to make it into a little marina that had a break wall around it as the wind started to really whip up. Made it through the break wall gap just fine, and a police car came to the end of the breakwater and turned on his lights on to be helpful. It was completely blinding. Scary stuff. Sometimes you can plan all you want but things just don't happen the way you expect.

Glad she was able to ride it out.

Re: Women at Sea

[quote=aferlazzo;597633]It is a weight that you attach to your rode to make the rode pull on your anchor more in the horizontal plane to reduce the risk of your anchor dragging. You can make one up by attaching a weight of say 20 pounds to some kind of roller that goes over your rode, and then attach a pennant to the roller so you can control where the kellet is on the rode from your boat.

Some swear by them, others think they are an unnecessary nuisance. I think if you have an all chain rode, they are much less helpful, but I can see that they could work very well if you use a rode that is primarily rope.

on edit: is anyone else surprised that the author of the OP's quoted article did not mention among her lessons learned that it was a mistake to rely solely on GPS (with her bad waypoints) for navigation? Wouldn't she have avoided her mistake in navigation (which eventually caused her to enter the anchorage location after dark which in turn caused her to anchor in a suboptimal location) by simply looking at a chart?[/quote]

I'm new to all of this and am reading lots of threads so I can learn as much as possible about sailing. See, this was good for me to read...because I'm thinking, wasn't she just panic stricken enough to forget the most logical thing? Seems like that's a common thing to do. But I'm so glad you put it out there, because now I know you have another option. That was one horrendous ordeal. I imagine sailors go through that though, from time to time. It can't all be smooth sailing, or can it?

Diane
