Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

Even though it is very pretty with a lot of stainless, I find the little wire toast holders on my Hunter toaster to be thin, thus causing my toast to wobble and burn when I am going over swells...
Since the toast doesn't turn out perfectly, I would not recommend it for offshore. I am looking into a one off, custom solar toaster instead. Should last me until the sun don't shine.

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

I've got an old "bluewater" full frame toaster (weights 30 lbs), but the toast takes a loooong time to get done and by the time it happens it is dinner time. Can you recommend a toaster that works in time for breakfast?

Just watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show at night. Then you'll have something to throw!

The "good" thread titles get edited by the mods......



......as I said on the (originally titled) "Do Multiholers smell of poo?" thread.

Hmmm - maybe too simple

I discharged my toilet into the Marina. For how long should I avoid eating Mullet?
