Really? I don't see it that way To me what they are doing is like posting mail from prison. You can spin it any way you like to the people you're writing to but you're still in prison.

RE: Refrigerator Question......

Ha!* Marin, you're a very funny guy.* But that's no way to speak of your birthplace and the previous home to your boat!* Are you having a bad day?

I guess us jailbirds will just have to suffer through life knowing this is all we'll have to look forward to.

Mark, what are you doing out in the yard?* We better get back in our cells!!*

*No, I'm having a great day.* Went up to the boat today, looked at all the islands and great cruising grounds, plotted some routes up the north end of Vancouver Island, Blackfish Sound, and Knight inlet for our upcoming halibut trip, had a nice dinner of fresh clams and mussels, looked at the sunset illuminating Mt. Baker, stuff like that.

Our boat and I are very lucky.* We escaped from prison and have never looked back.

The first two photos are of where our boat lived before we liberated it.* The three shots following them are where it lives now.

You're in a beautiful location Marin. Not sure I could cope with the cold but the pristine environment could very well be worth it.

Refrigerator Question......

I'd tell you what the seasonal average temperatures are around here but then you might want to come boat here and we don't want that.

Suffice it to say the temperatures along the PNW, BC, and SE Alaska coasts aren't exactly the same as, say, the Alaskan interior.* But we encourage people to think that they are.

I'd tell you what the seasonal average temperatures are around here but then you might NEVER want to come boat here. Except maybe for July and August.

I realize that this is an old post but one who's subject continues to surface. Since I am the brunt of the negative posts about my refrigerator, here is what I intend to do about it!

I gotta move my beer lower! Here's a shot while underway today. The beer shifted in transit, so now I'm sitting here testing them one-by-one. I'll report back if I find a bad one.



Here's a shot of fridge #2 full of food. I had to add it to keep the food from spoiling while the beer stayed cold. The Admiral is funny that way...

Al: Where are your refrigerators located on your boat?

Take care Flywright, boats have been lost by cargo moving. The bottle of water is the likely culprit.

Scientifically speaking, Walt has the right idea. The coldest air is at the bottom of the fridge.
