Still trying to get this cholesterol every one talks about these days..
But seriously.. the above and the Traditional Sunday Roast properly done are the two things 'Foodie' in my Top Ten things I miss about the UK..
Most other countries bacon is streaky crispy fatty things.. 1/2 cup of fat left in pan/12 slices of bacon.. with loadsa burnt fat sticking to silvers of meat..
I like bread with my butter.. and meat with my grease..

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Bad planning here. Went to the Santa Catalina Market & bought some lovely meat, veg, & salad makings. But the wx is so poor we rented a car to get off the boat. Now we have lots of good food on the boat & a car to drive to our favorite restaurants. Very poor planning on our part.

LOL

that is why when in Palma, I only buy enough for 2 days..... or put in freezer. Then I stopped buying except for special occasions because I eat out most of the time.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

Orinoco taken out and placed on the hard today, very sad, our season has come to an end and I'll be heading back to Massachusetts next Thursday after completing a few routine maintenance procedures. We sailed into Olbia in Force 7-8 conditions four days ago because the engine alarm came on ten miles out. It was quite the workout tacking the entire way directly into the wind heavily reefed through the narrow harbor channel, past the mussel beds and right up to the yard dock without the engine.

After docking, then the engine was fine. Seems that the alarm itself was the problem. Luckily, nothing wrong with the engine.

Seems so wrong to end a season when you dont have to.

or not.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

No problems. Time to rest.

JANE EYRE was published this day according to one source
Jane Eyre is published - Oct 06, 1847 - HISTORY.com

So, why not kick back and read the good book, hootch your mug and eat a banana?

We won't be getting a Catamaran. The weather here in Corsica and Sardinia is changing, so this is why the season has concluded. Last week we spent two days in force 8 conditions while sailing down the coast of Corsica and an entire day in Force 9.5 (40-50 knots) continuous heading through the Bonifacio straight and down to eastern Sardinia. Honestly, there's no boat I'd would have rather been on than our Oyster. I'll post some video of the storm just as soon as I get it edited.

Here's a picture of our Chartplotter screen showing our entrance into Olbia last Friday. Not fun, but we did it.... Just the two of us. Sailed in and docked the boat without an engine. To the naysayers.... Yes, two 58 year olds can safely sail a 54ft boat in without any power in 35 knot winds.

Lol. I bet everyone who has a good boat says the same thing. If you think about it, people change vessels all the time and each one is the one they like better in the main.

Glad you had fun. I personally would rather have been on a Cat but the Oyster was a good safe vessel to be on if it had to be a mono.

Re: The Mallorca Squad

DO any of the Squaddies have comments or experience with the build process of GRP over Ply?

A lot of nice looking boats built this method are appearing for reasonable money in the UK.
