Tuesday, May 15, 2012Hello Boaters! With all of this early warm weather many of us are already working on our boats and we should have an early launch. As we head to the boat with supplies in hand be sure to have a good breakfast so you have the energy to get the job done. Speaking of breakfast as it is the most important meal of the day, it is also the
Sunday, April 8, 2012Hello Mates! For the most part we’ve been pretty lucky this winter with the warm weather, and with any luck we’ll be boating a little sooner this year. Speaking of luck, it was St. Patty's Day last month, and with that came green beer, Irish whiskey, and of course Corned Beef and Cabbage. As I was growing up Corned Beef

Monday, October 17, 2011This yummy compliment to any meal is super boat-friendly. Most of the ingredients are non-perishable and can be kept on board for long periods of time before preparing.

Wednesday, July 6, 2011Great boating and scrumptious eats is our theme for this summer! My hope is that we squeeze every drop of fun out of this season. Pushing those throttles full out! Are you ready?! Let's do it! Now that we've waxed our hulls, buffed our brass and tweaked the props — we can stock the galley with every good thing to wow the gang.
Friday, June 10, 2011Like to eat on your boat? Sure, we all do. It just adds to the fun! What's better than eating dinner and watching the sun set over the water — or an early morning, watching the birds with a cup of coffee in hand? But turning these visions into reality involves overcoming some challenges in cooking aboard. There's less space for
Sunday, May 15, 2011Ahoy, Mates!! Spring is here, the ice boom is out and I can already hear the water lapping on the sides of the boat! Hallelujah! We made it through another dreadful winter of no boating. Had it been any longer, I might have seriously thought of moving South!
