RE: Don't cruise in heavy weather cooking a pot roast!
We put stuff in the sink also when in rough water. We put the coffee maker/pot there, etc.
We dont cook when underway, unless it is very much expected to be a smooth passage (ie river, or a no-wind day, etc.) But even then you have to be careful about big boat wakes. It only takes ONE wake to spill the pot !
I've had the TV fall over on me when we departed and forgot to lay it down. But I think we are getting better.
Reminds me of our old blow boater days - life on the tilt !
