PBL (Purchase Before Leaving)
Funnels. Nope, there’s nothing at all glamorous about this piece of boat kit but they sure are essential, for us anyway. We have no less than 7 different funnels on board ZTC and still wish that we had at least 1 or 2 more. We use them to assist with fuel, water and oil transfers, tasks which seem to happen all too frequently.
Yes, funnels should be on the PBL (Purchase Before Leaving) list*. Before you set sail for places unknown, be sure to pick up a selection of them in a variety of sizes from Walmart or Home Depot. Although they do sell them in many places out here, you’ll no doubt be able to acquire them a lot cheaper back home at stores like that.
*I plan on adding to the PBL list as time goes by.
