Spend a summer in July on the Chesapeake, while not a necessity......why not

Some of the small ones I’m researching are manual and the only think which goes in the evaporator is the ss metal drum. Should fit in my evaporator easily. Only makes a pint at a time, but might be a great alternative to the ice fruit smoothies the ninja makes.

I'm sure would be great. Heck, I loves me cold beer, and that's not "needed" either.

Just sayin' how funny it is that a thread asking about what one actually needs has evolved into a discussion about ice cream makers. We're definitely into "first world problem" territory .

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Re: What do you actually need on a boat?

For us ice cream is a big deal. Although our freezer makes everything else rock hard it has trouble with ice cream. Ours is a water cooled dual frigiboat set up. Water temperatures are quite warm down here and we like having the compressors shut off as frequently as possible. No issue with the frig set at 38F but unless we let the freezer go up to a setting of 22 to 24F it won’t shut off.
When the freezer is chock full we can keep ice cream and bring the temp down to even as low as 12F. When it’s more than half empty we get ice cream slush. What’s strange is everything else stays rock hard frozen. My suspicion is ice cream is a complex emulsion and veggies, meat or other stuff freezes at a higher temperature. Even 24 is enough.
Have gotten partial to nutmeg ice cream. That with hot fudge and whip cream is yummy. Good excuse to leave the boat.
Have been told to add air coolers to the water coolers on the frigoboats. Expensive. So wonder if anyone has done this and is it worthwhile. Ice cream is a want not need.

Ice cream storage needs zero degrees. Tempered for serving at 10-15 degrees.

Whats with the avoidance of a windlass? My back loves my windlass. It does take 30 minutes of maintenance time each year, so isn't for slackers.
It really isn't for slackers indeed.

That's why I don't slack in bringing my Fenix E12 EDC flashlight I found at

I like it because it forces a certainly frugality. Small space, less places to fill with unnecessary junk. Less in general.
