Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Thinking cornish hens would be nice in the oven that does not shut off.

I hear great things about the Omnia Stove Top Ovens from The Boat Galley.

Is it propane? So not shutting off meaning the gas keeps flowing? Yikes. But if you're gonna use it, I guess you just kill it with the solenoid or just close the valve on the tank? Would be easy for anyone to spend $1000 over two weeks eating out a lot. That could be a great galley improvement.

Last time I cooked thanksgiving on my boat, I just quartered a nice roaster and put in a casserole with celery, carrot, onion, potato. Olive oil/butter, herbs, salt and pepper on the bird and cover for first part then finish uncovered. I guess it is a one pot meal, and super easy. Just break the carrots in thirds, same with celery and quarter the onions. I could get that in the pan in under five min, but would also throw some sweet potatoes or squash in the oven while I'm burning fuel. That and some steamed or sautéed greens on the stove too with some balsamic tossed in and you have a meal that takes way more time to shop for than prepare. If you find decent Cornish hens - great, but they are really just mini roasters and a good basic chicken might be better quality and cheaper. But they are novel, and we do eat with our imaginations as much as our mouths.

Whatever you do, I hope it is a great thanksgiving and a celebration of a job well done. It is unexpectedly satisfying following you down the coast for your first time, and you have pushed on where many others would have taken a lay day. I hope that doesn't come back to disrupt your good fortune to date. your deadline has kept you driving hard at the helm but some of us can relate. Looks like a good window coming up, prolly need to get staged at bald head or southport to get out the cape fear. You want to be set to depart at any time of day for an overnight sail. If you guys can get in a watch routine you may get to Fernandina in that window, over a couple of days, but you can always pull over in Charleston. It's just a long damn way to tie up from the Chas sea buoy, and not a cheap stop.

Your Canadian friends have a good bit of experience, and a surfing machine. They made a very fast passage by all measures. Most cruisers are not logging 250 mile days. Quite impressive, really.

I know after all that discussion at the beginning that it was impossible to make that time.

Judging by some of your food critiques and human critics, you could also call it "Aspergers at sea, assburgers on land"

Cannot believe how many posts made on here during my sleep time.

Scoob,

If you get to Cape Fear and need to resupply let me know. You can use the car.

Yep same in Palm Beach. Had a nice sail up to St Lucie but didn't see anyone else out. Mostly WNW wind so it wasn't that bad and easy to scoot along close to shore.

The Scoobert Show is pretty entertaining. Good for you!

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

I just sat down to read this thread, it was57 pages then...now 58!

Re book title....Captain Scoob

I can see some of my own past experiences here.

How many of us really learn more from reading than from doing? Not the same thing.
