Try the ultralight, ultracompact stealth version of the fly swatter.

Take a good 1/4" wide rubber band and cut off the curve from one end. Now, with some care, you can pull it back to full length and get close enough to any fly to zap it. The rubber moves fast enough, with so little ai pushing in front of it, that they can't escape unless your aim has been horrid.

If the fly is on a flat surface, you can also sneak up on it with a plain butter knife from above. Apparently the reflection of a fly above them is not perceived as a threat, so you can come within a few inches and then...SMACK!

Just remember that knife doesn't go in the galley drawer.< G >

Nesting pots with removable handles are really the best. When not in use they fit inside each other and stow away inside the stove. Takes up little precious space.

My wife and I are planning to go cruising in a couple of years and I thought I would check out this forum to help us get ready. We use a Galloping Gourmet convection oven at home that is awesome. You can cook almost anything in it much quicker than an oven and with less power. Has anyone tried one of these on a boat?

Convection ovens ARE great. But how many amps does it draw, for how many minutes, for your average meal?

Will you boat have enough battery capacity to supply that, and still give you reasonable time between recharges?

Idiens: I'm not sure I understand - it shouldn't take more heat than you would otherwise need to boil water. Is it possible that the gasket is not seated well, or is too old, and hence letting steam escape before pressure builds up?
