At first I couldn't think of anything but this is a "must"...
We keep at least one aboard as well as at home and on the motorhome.
I appreciate a good Bourbon Old Fashioned and have trained many neighboring boat owners to make and enjoy them as well -
a muddler is an essential tool to release the full flavors of the fruit.

Greetings,
THIS muddler (minnow) is an essential tool to release the full flavors of a trout (or any other game fish for that matter)...



...although I prefer to make my tail from red squirrel...

I have 2 gadgets that I find really helpful in the galley. The 1st is a 4th burner pot, I use it to steam veggies and to hardboil eggs, works very well on my 3 burner Princess electric. The 2nd is zojirushi electric grill that does a excellent job on steaks and chops, better than any propane grill I've ever used.Click image for larger version

Can a gadget get any better than that?

I agree with the muddler. Needed for Caipirihnas too, I traced one out on a napkin in a bar in Brazil years ago since then I've made this one plus about a dozen on my lathe. There is at least one in the Galley.

A pair of large vise grips. Yes, you read that correct.

Adjust for slightly smaller than your pecan shell and you'll have perfectly opened pieces in a jiffy. It's much better than a nutcracker and easier too. In October, in Pensacola, the pecans come into season.

Grab a bag, your vise grips and have at it.

Yeah, that might not have been fair, but she doesn't mind.

Wifey B: So you're suggesting everyone (well everyone who has nuts) put their nuts in vise grips and squeeze?

I did say vise grips not vice grips...

Nesting...nesting bowls, nesting pans. Collapsible items.

One thing I've observed is that boats often have great dish and glass storage, far more space efficient than typical kitchen cabinets.

Not really a gadget but we added an Engel Freezer to our below deck storage area. The wife loves it. Keeps things rock hard frozen and can be a fridge instead If you like. It's pricey, Model MR40 at $840 but worth it for a live aboard. I see no discernible effect on batteries overnight. Ann might like it too.
