And they know what to expect from you. Think about it. For your own benefit.

Make sure you don't have it on your main battery though....or you may not be able to start your engine. A second battery or batteries, with a solar charger is the way to go.
Good advice. Thanks!

Guess we gave Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Iraq, Iran and the other stragglers back.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

I finally figured out what that meant; seems that there are 57 US States, territories, and possessions (and, of course, DC) that can vote in Primaries and/or Caucuses! Not states of course, but at least it makes some sense in that context of how many "states" you've wine trying to get nominated…

In the summer we keep it on the boat; it's more efficient than the main fridge and because it is ac/dc and the main fridge is dc only, when plugged into the dock I can keep the beverages cold all the time (set to 35 degrees) without cycling my batteries. I really like this unit. One thing: the dc socket in the unit is wired with a soldered connection that broke loose. I had to take it apart and re-solder it. Now I keep the dc plug in the socket all the time; I think the wiggling to plug and unplug caused the failure. I bought the cover that they sell for it, which has pockets for the ac and dc cords as well as adding extra insulation for the box. I get a lot of use out of this fridge. It was pricey but worth it.
The Dometics are real pricey, but sometimes you get what you pay for.
I'm looking at this one as it's both a freezer and a fridge, or both, has two thermostats. http://www.amazon.com/Whynter-FM-62D.../dp/B008VX01P2

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Scoobert, Golly don't come to Louisiana, with your attitude some of the folks down here would not hang with your ideas !! even tho the food is cheaper and better but they don't much care for folks that don't have simple manners LOL !! and most of the depths are to shallow if ya can't really navigate well. O well sea food is the norm down here and yall seem to be meat eaters !! LOL I really believe that more time at anchor would really make your trip more fun and even a little cheaper!! have fun

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Hmmm - We sailed on a Tartan 33 with no oven (it was an alcohol stove and we never did try to figure out the oven), no refrigeration (icebox) and 5 people. We would shop about every 4-5 days, storing everything in the icebox (which your fridge is right now) packed with blocks of ice. I had 3 kids and a very hungry hubby. The Magma grill and stove top was all we used and we ate well. VERY well. We never ate out or stayed at a marina because, well, we couldn't afford it.

Hey Snore, where did you live in the Bronx? I was working around E 158 st and Cauldwell ave a few years back.

If you dont want the mess from melting water in the fridge, get a block of dry ice. It is about a buck a pound around here in any ice place. The only problem would be the CO2 that would build up in the cabin if it was sealed up too tight. We use a block in an old broken chest freezer at my church when we have a picnic, fish fry, etc... Everything stays ice cold.

50 states, plus 11 insular possessions, plus DC. So, 62 venues of various kinds, according to the fed. Of course, they might not be telling us about everything they own.<G>
