Yes, it really is a big deal. Maybe it's the scary part that keeps some from ever actually living out their dreams. Hey, it's easy. After a couple of days, you guys will get in the groove. The actual "leaving" is the hard part. The rest is just learning as you go. It comes quickly....and you will learn something new just about every day. We're still learning, but the scary part is gone now. You guys will do fine, unless you go looking for a nail-biting BFS experience....

Okay! The new solar panels are now charging my newly expanded 384-ah house bank! Next up is the LinkPro and that should do it for the electrical work - for now.



Also installed cam cleats on the mast for the new lazy jack lines, lee cloth anchors in the salon, and lid locks for all the settee lids.

Kind of rocked it this weekend. Write up coming soon.

RobG, It may not damage it in Connecticut, but I wouldn't want to test that in Texas on my Lagavulin 16. Just not worth the risk.

I keeps it in the frig on the boat. I likes to keep an eye on it. Got to protect from boarders too.

Heat will not damage whiskey if it is bottled. In the cask it can have an effect...could be for the better or worse in the overall aging process, but it does not "hurt" it. Casks sit in warehouses for decades that are not climate controlled. Be it Scotland or Kentucky or Japan.

Yamazaki chilled with a solid globe if ice is interesting, not really "better" in my opinion, but that is the beauty of it...just my opinion.
Cheers!

This is me rolling my eyes. I don't care if it's damaged. If it brings the buzz that's good enough.

You can drink on your boat in hot places like Texas or the Carib - or you can stay home and keep your scotch in the fridge because it demands it. A real man never lets his booze run his life. He sails.

There are also reusable ice cubes which are water filled plastic things. Less classy but works just as well.
Better. The plastic ones have a phase change happening, which gives them respectable cooling power. The stones will cool the drink 10-15F below room temp, but they're done after that. And they're hard enough to chip your glassware if you're not careful with them. Or your teeth. Ice is soft in comparison.

Heh. Interestingly, the Yamazaki 12 is a single malt that actually LIKES ice. (The 18 doesn't, btw. The things I do for SCIENCE!)
