Sad boat

For Carey:

First you*make a roux......

The fat used in roux may be butter, shortening, lard, oil, or even bacon drippings. Combine fat with an equal amount of flour ; 1/2 cup of each will make a good amount and any excess can be stored in the refrigerator. (Many cookbooks call for a little more fat than flour - 2/3 cup oil to 1/2 cup flour is a common ratio.) Melt the fat in a black skillet over low heat. When warm and fluid, sprinkle the flour in a little at a time, stirring. Stir constantly until brown (this may take 20 to 30 minutes) ; immediately remove from heat or add ingredients your recipe calls for. If it burns even slightly, throw it out and start over again.

Cary,

I'd give it the Nordic Tug treatment or perhaps a cabin w a bit less "tug rocker" to the cabin roof but otherwise much like a Lord Nelson.

"We" have our own "sad boat" on Mare Island Strait.

*Hmmm, not bad you need a couple of portholes on the starboard side of the trunk cabin and you are good to go.* The smaller salon windows and bridge windows*makes it look like a lot bigger boat.* I would love to see how that side entry looks inside.* Does it enter into the salon and is that a pilot house style?

Anyone know the actual length of this thing?*

Thanks Steve

My first attempts were with guidance from a couple cookbooks i picked up down the bayou, but I used a stainless pan, and even after a couple hours of stirring could not get past a light brown color. Maybe I was being too careful not to burn it.*

I will get my cookbook and your instructions and give it another try in my new cast iron pan. I am trying to create a passable to killer gumbo.

RE: Sad boat

Mark, the boat in your photo is our local AVR-63, a WW-II era "Crash Boat". Or what's left of it! Note the old motor home used for the house. The AVRs were used for rescue of downed airmen, etc. Some are still around and in restored condition.

I used the door on the boathouse in the background as a scale and estimate between 50' to 60'. My method could be flawed though.
