Reason #2675 why we want to get back on our boat: Cooking!

Our apartment galley (kitchen):

  • Small bar fridge with TINY freezer
  • Tiny microwave
  • Electric frying pan
  • 1 sink

Our boat galley:

  • Top-loading fridge with still small, but larger freezer
  • 2-burner propane stove
  • propane bar-b-que (outside of course)
  • 2 sinks

We use a few other electric appliances in the apartment such as a toaster and an electric coffee maker. Although we could use them on the boat, powered through the inverter, that likely won’t be happening unless we are connected to shore power. Note that in neither place do we have an oven, and to be honest, we really don’t miss it.

Oh, remember how we had finally “decided” to not install a watermaker at this time? First hand reports of water shortages and this article are now causing me to second guess our decision. 🙁

Oh, on a different topic, I was inspired by Drew’s list that I posted yesterday and decided to organize my tools. Ever conscious of adding extra poundage to Katana, I was curious to see how much the collection weighed. My guess was 40-50 lbs. Actual weight: 91 lbs. Is that a lot or a little? I don’t know but nothing in my list seems to be too “out there.” They all seem necessary to me, and in truth, there are still some gaps in our tool list that need to be filled.


  1. I feel your pain with the tiny apartment. I can touch the walls on both sides of our kitchen-at the same time!

    Can’t get into the bathroom if there’s someone standing in the kitchen!

    The boat will seem spacious when we finally get back in the water.
