RE: Beer

Saw some good advice on facebook the other day. To paraphrase: Don't eat or drink anything that has a TV commercial.

I've had decent beer all over the country. I ask what dark beers they have on tap and then order whatever they have that I've never heard of. Most of the time it works pretty well.

RE: Mattresses.
Mike sold me some great foam mattresses with Jeannius. Sleeping like a baby on her.
The point about tissue ischemia is spot on. Rocking the night away in your berth lets the boat do what Mommy used to do for you.
I used to do a lot of commuting for work. I spent extra dough on my driver's seat after calculating that the 250K mi. I would spend in that seat equated to 5000 hours (assuming 50 mph avg speed--I did a lot of freeways). Anything one spends a lot of time with should get extra $$. Especially wives

I agree that West Marine makes some of the best folding seats.
They now make a go-anywhere simple folding chair with arms that is really comfortable ($109) WEST MARINE Go-Anywhere Chair with Arms | West Marine
I recently sat in another of their folding chairs that had a high back, bigger arms and even a drink holder and pocket for a book or glasses or phone. It folds down, but not into as slim a profile as the go-anywhere seats ($149)

WTF?

I hate to be Debbie Downer but I'd suggest you actually sit in these chairs for more than a moment in the store before posting a review. The armless ones are OK, the ones you mention are ... how shall I say this .. pieces of ****. I bought them. I returned them. What's your experience?

Sorry our butts don't see arse to arse Mr. Crab.

I like the arm-chair, what can I say. I used it all winter long at my son's lacrosse games and it was a lifesaver on those hard, cold benches. When it folds it has straps on the back so I can carry it like a backpack to the field.

Important things we don't talk about much

+1 on the armless WM Folding chairs.

We wore 2 out cruising-spent hours each day in those chairs while on watch or in port up in the cockpit. We tried the armed versions at a friends but it was a bit unwieldy to use in the cockpit.

Re: Important things we don't talk about much

Adjustable recliner... One of the best features on my boat! Have 4 of them.

Could never do without. Doubles as a mattress as well. 😉. Dog not included.

Re: Important things we don't talk about much

I agree on the adjustable chairs. We have 2. We use it at the helm seat on longer passages, much more comfortable than the standard bench seat. Jen uses it on the side decks when fishing or soaking up the sun. Yesterday I used one for a yoga mat on the foredeck, then we put two together for a massage table in cockpit compliments of Jen. Awesome!

I've got an update on the arm chairs (with a corrected link to see what they look like for sale at West Marine). First, here's the link: WEST MARINE Go-Anywhere Chair with Arms | West Marine
and, second, here are photos of the chairs being used on our boat...we have two of the armless and two with arms. Everyone seems to choose the ones ones with arms when they have a choice.
