If you google stainless thermal french press, you can see a bunch of different brands including bodum, frieling and others. Not the one I have, but obviously similar is the bodum:

Good brewing.

Congratulations CaptainK!!

I'm very happy for you!

The Catalina 27 is the most popular sailboat on Cave Run Lake here in Kentucky where we sail our Ensenada 20. All the C-27 owners I know love them.

My question is:

Are you going to commute to California to sail your new baby??

I can't quite picture pleasant sailing on the Colorado River there in Arizona!!!!!

Thanks Lodesman & Lightfin

No I am hoping to move back to California this summer. (Fingers crossed)

When and if I arrive. I will spend a little time getting her fixed up enough to sail out of Moss Landing. Looking at least 2 weeks minimum, to get her seaworthy. And sail her out of Moss Landing. I'm hoping to homeport her in the Delta region of Northern California. Probably near Stockton, California?

Lodesman. Wow!! It just happens to be so, my name is Kevin too!! Nice to meet ya!!

As to myself. I plan to register my boat under the Catalina owners organization somewhere down the road. (Not a priority at this moment in time.)

Also I have posted the photos of the sailboat. Just go to members photo album. It's all there in it's present condition.

Thanks everybody.

Wow.... slow isn't even the word. The thread talks about this already! Congrats anyway though. Hope all works out well going back to Cali.

Sorry about this stupid post and probably 1500 others lately. The Cruiser's Forum and 14 hour days doing boat work do NOT mix. I always seem to log on here like a zombie lately.

Trivia

Quote:
One of the "negatives" of the Catalina is the little walking room on the sides as you go forward on the top deck
Those are called side decks.

One disadvantage of the French press is that if the coffee isn't consumed or poured off in a reasonsble amount of time, it can become bitter from continued contact with the grounds.

Other than that, it's simplicity as much to commend it.

Speaking of plungers

I just saw an idea for an emergency manual bilge pump. You get a plunger, remove the wooden rod, drill a hole through the middle, attach a hose, put the plunger in the head bottom, and pump the head for an emergency bilge pump.

K, Gotta take those projects one at a time. The coffee maker is a good start
Try this link: http://www.ineedcoffee.com/03/mokaexpress/
rsn48, Great idea! That would work on the Catalina.

Well Sean.

I plan on doing most of my sailing along the Delta region in northern California. That's where I'll do most of my sailing at.

Unless I can get more than a week off. I could sail down the Delta, and into the San Fransisco bay. And out to the Pacific!!

CaptainJeff.

You're right about the side decks, being too narrow. But in a pinch I'll just walk over the cabin top if I must?

They ay you can find every type of sailing you will ever encounter in the SF bay. I think if you get out there you will find more than enough adventure. AND, you can always add a couple of days and cove visit us down here
