Hint: they're spill proof, not leak proof.
I love it! Much better than the flexible silicone glasses that work well for hiking, but won't fit in a cup holder on deck

Thank you very much for the recommendation!

Re: Sailboat Wine Storage Ideas

I just leave it in the case and try not to make it too easy to get at. On a similar question I asked Sir James Hardy what he recommend to take on an extended cruise. Sir James is a well known sailor and wine maker in Australia. He recommended young robust wines with really good corks. I now go for the selwyn screw tops.

Re: Sailboat Wine Storage Ideas

I stow bottles under the saloon settees.... rattle stoppers are old car inner tubes cut into 11.5 inch lengths.... inner tubes from Citroen CXs are a perfect fit....

Nice idea, I guess later you could just add the water back in, maybe even doubling the quantity for even more added value.

Re: Sailboat Wine Storage Ideas

My setup is pretty pathetic all booze into the cooler where it's cooled and reheated cyclically depending in the presence or absence of ice, respectively.
That being said, my Ericson has a bilge so deep (2ft)!!! Anything stored there would be water temperature. I never thought about wine storage there! Thanks!
