Re: Night Watch

You can buy it in bottles at the grocery store and who says a night watch has to be offshore?

my simrad is the only hydraulic item on board and is self contained, mounted on a quadrant operated by a cable. uses barely any electricity. works like a horse. i love it. dont know what i would place on a smaller boat, such as my ericson, for reliability and efficiency--prolly the wheel driven autohelm, but i have doubts with that system--too much experience with it, besides i am spoiled to bits by my simrad system.....

Re: Night Watch

11 oz mixed nuts, 6 oz dried cranberries, and a single serve pack of MM's tossed in a 0.75 L container is pretty tasty. The variety of different nuts keeps it fun, and other dried fruit can substitute or supplement the raisins used in your standard GORP (good ol'fashioned raisins and peanuts). Dried cherries are also good, I haven't experimented with much other fruit yet. Dried tomato might be interesting.
