Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Karen - I too am of the Danish persuasion. Raised on bread and butter. Used a butter bell to keep the sweet butter at room temperature. Here are a couple of related links:

Butter Bell Crocks for Storing Butter

Storing Butter and Cheese on a Boat | The Boat Galley

And, before someone brings up the health issue -- Danes have evolved to thrive on a high dairy fat diet. So, even though I am nearly 67, the doc's say my arteries are in great shape. YMMV.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

oooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh, viking ssailor--ye twanged my heart.
is truth that
butter is better for ye than is coconut oil and palm oil and alladat stuff n bs they put into FAKE doesnt taste decent nonbutter. so i use real butter and i use extra virgin olive oil.
speaking of dane-- i was also taught eggs..we ate them a lot. i am old. i aint ded yet. dont even have a heart, or condition of one. and my blood flows as good as it is gonna......
geez--sometimes i even eat a lot of bacon. yummmmmmmm. but i havent gotten into the meats in mexico yet-- still working on fish and chiles relleno



butter bell sounds like a great idea for butter storage and separating--until i have an air conditioner--(uhh--oops)--been dreaming if 50 percent humidity instead of 80+..LOL

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Zee, when the heat index here got to 115, I couldn't stand it anymore and bought a 7K btu poteble AC at Home depot for $249.00' It fits under the companioway ladder and draws 7 amps. Uses the water it removes to cool the condenser coils so liilte to drain to the bilge. I keep the door to the forward cabin shut and the thing keeps it comfortable until it hits about 95 outide. Then it starts to cycle and it's just bareable instead of comfortable on board. A larger unit would not fit in the space under the ladder, too wide. Hope this info helps.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Karen, I did a couple of years cruisin' Mexico in the late '80s. For sure the heat and humidity does take some getting use to. Make sure you drink at least 2 or 3L of water per day. This includes drinking some during the night. Also, adding a squeeze of lime to the water helps keep your mouth moist. And, try not to drink cold stuff. I think it confuses the body about what it's temperature should be. I still drink warm beer and soda without ice. Also, swim and shower to your hearts content. - Paul

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

I have the LG. Fits nicely under the ladder, but I had to scrounge some blocks to sit it on to get it high enough to drsin to the bilge. The pan under it fills with water sometimes and it shuts down, so I took the plug out of it and connected a hose to the bilge. I leave the dog on board sometimes when I have to run somewhere and I don't want to chance it shutting off while I'm gone cause the pan is full.
You will need to run the exhaust hose (about like a 6" hose from a clothes dryer) outside. I ran mine out through the forward wall in my cockpit well, but yours is probably finished so you'd have to figure another route for the exhaust hose. They only give you 72" of hose to work with. Maybe leave one of the doors to the compaioway open and build a temporary with plywood or something to put the hose through.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

oh yeah--is 2-3 gallon per day time,now--- consider 250 cc from night breathing. double or triple that for daytime breathing\. this is important in hot places.
add 250 cc per day of sweat, also night as is not gone and ye do sweat at night here...
triple,even quadruple that to make minimum replacement--less than that i feel bad. so i drink LOT.. i think i actually drink 1-/2 gal per day and i should do 2 gal-2 1/2
we figgered 4:1 in er for rehydration orally and 2-3 :1 for maintenance.
i love the limes here--- niiice ones..like key limes but different....
looove my hose with the shower nozzle!!!! i can stand on dock in skimpies and shower as long as i want!!!!! and as many times!!!!

I recognized the joke before it was finished, but understand from my own missed humor, the need to explain that you were just kidding. Regardless, so anti-cliche it was hilarious.

Re: SSSSM - Part Deux

Zee, I'm not happy with the output of the portable. I've had $85.00, 5K btu Wallyworld cheapy window units that cooled twice as well. But it is about 12"x12" and 30" high, would fit the space I had for it and it was damned hot out so I didn't feel like improviving a way to use a window unit. If a larger one would fit the space, I'd have one.
