Re: dishes for cruising

We're using Corelle aboard, and have not broken anything (yet) despite sailing in some very heavy conditions.

We did have some melamine dinnerware before and I just never liked it, but this is just a preference.

Re: dishes for cruising

Most of y’all are barbarians, feeding from dog bowls, troughs or even Alzheimer inducing horrible plastics

Tradition dictates food service aboard sailboats requires the finest china and tableware! We have used Wedgwood for the past 20+ years and nothing ever broke, not even in any of the hurricanes we went through!

Eating Mountain House straight from the bag or from dog bowls I guess you don’t get many guest eaters aboard lol?!

Re: dishes for cruising

It is stunningly funny how polar the idea of "dog bowls" are.

Re: dishes for cruising

For those using Corelle, do you use it at home too? When you have guesds over and want to serve a nice meal?

To me, discussions like these help explain why there are so many single men living on boats ........

Re: dishes for cruising

I*think this discussion reveals how persnikity some here are 😁. It’s a plate, or a bowl… on a boat. It’s just not that big a deal for me.

I would certainly never think less of someone who offered me a meal from a ss bowl, even if it said “Fido” on it. As long as it’s not actual dog food… that would cross a line.😉

Re: dishes for cruising

For over twenty years of messing about on boats I've tried just about everything. When I first started, I brought some of my backpacking ideas on to my small boat, which included using a Frisbee with its curled edges as my dinner plate. Then I grew into a larger sailboat and decided use china that I would find at thrift stores. None of the pieces matched, but it made for a very eclectic looking table setting if I had company. Food stayed warmer on it. And it added a certain sense of warmth and ambience. It added a little weight and yes, it was possible that the stuff would break period but after full time for over a year I managed not to break a single piece.
I currently have a set of the plastic marine stuff on our Rosborough because it stacks easily, doesn’t break, and it'slight. But, It's boring and food gets cold too soon. If I were to accidentally drop it all overboard, I would go find the closest thrift store and buy some more china. Everybody has unloaded grandma's bone china and you can buy it for pennies.
And I'm sorry, but I won't drink my coffee out of anything other than a heavy ceramic mug except under way where I have a ceramic lined stainless steel tumbler.
But that's me. To each their own.

Re: dishes for cruising

I almost passed up this thread. When I saw that it had several pages, I had to see why.... Holy crap, I am not disappointed.

This has to be one of the funniest threads ever on CF!

Re: dishes for cruising

Slightly left field.
Kupilka does an unusual range of plates, bowls, etc that bounce, don’t slide and might do.

Love my Corelle and never had an issue.

Re: dishes for cruising

Ok shamed as a barbarian, I just perused the aisles of Walmart... but alas, nothing yet superior to my canine bowls...

I looked for "stainless steel insulated bowls" and "insulated camp bowls" and none of them have the rubber pads on the bottom like the doggie bowls.

Really, just call them "storm force soup and stew bowls for true mariners" and then they're great!

I'd happily share a meal served in your stylish bowls Don ... especially if you're buying .

Hey, don't let these elitist dish snobs "Bowl Shame" you. You just went up like 10 ratline steps on the Salty AF meter in my book.
