Mark, are you turning North when you come out of the Med? Is the UK a possibility? I think we are going to be here until September at the earliest. We'd move the boat to anywhere on the South coast for a meet-up and a taste of your beer I'll find you some cool anchorages, come along-side and fill your water tanks and ferry fuel for you

Not warm enough yet. I think the med takes a while to warm up because of the depths, but by the end of summer its quite warm. But no snorkeling much... not as much as where theres coral etc.

She only has a smile on her face because she is going in, not out. Her face is still dry! Thats far too cold for that sort of stuff. She will enjoy diving in the tropics

Actually this was her second dive of the day..Berrr!....the smiles were probably knowing a couple gallons of warm water were about to be poured down her suit..

Here is the prior frame and following frame in the sequence.

They only ever take one out of the pack. It's like they say, you don't have out swim the orca, just the guy next to you.

Oh brewing and cruising/sailing.. oh what a life. Now I can actually add something to this forum since I've been getting so much information from it with the topic of brewing (one of my many hobbies).

If any cruiser out there is hesitant about brewing beer on the boat due to the water use and boiling there is also other options out there for you as well. One great option, especially if you have people on board that don't like the taste of beer, is apfelwein. It's very easy to make and stores very well. Just need applejuice (organic is the best), brown sugar, yeast, and a fermentation chamber (such as a PET 5 gallon bottle for large batches that is food safe) and you can have some good tasting brew that you can make anywhere with no extra water or boiling required.

You can also make some good CHEAP wine also that can ferment. The biggest problem with any brew on a boat that is fermenting is all the rolling and churning that can cause your yeasties to not settle well and can cause longer fermentation that on land.

MarkJ - This thread among others that you have out there is the inspiration that is pushing me along on my goal of living on the boat with the wife once the kids are older or out of the house.... thanks!

Back to the labels..

Really, the order of options for the picture on a label should have been 1.) Nicole, 2.) the boat, 3.) a actual sea lion, 4.) yourself.

Were you unable to arrange publishing rights for the first 3 choices?

Just Kidding, I would have put your mug before the sea lion (at least if it was old and wrinkly)

It was the Sea lion that kicked up the fuss
Apart from that I was looking for one of those pens, remember the 1980's?, the pens had a photo of a girl on them but when you inverted the pen the clothes fell off? Thats what I want. Then I'd put a chic flick up. Otherwise its gunna be ME

OMG I think you're on to something! It'll take the world by storm! Every time you up end the bottle to drink the hula girls cloths fall off. Why, the bottles will be empty in no time! Of course there will be male body prefered versions to avoid any possible claims of sexual something or other but wow! What a concept! What else ... oh, I know ... potatoe chips that make sexually explicit sounds when you chew. Who needs crunch when you've got sizzle?

Hmmm ... I'm going down into my labratory right now to start working on it ...
