I replaced my Princess stove and oven for a Force 10 stove and oven. Identical fit and the oven still fluctuates 50 degrees F.
Burns the bottom of the biscuits just like the Princess. I am not a happy camper. I have tried reducing the temp by 25F .... Results, the biscuits look good on the outside but inside doughy. I am open to suggestions.
Ah, I use dark cooking sheets and the silicon backing sheets.

Get a REMA cooking sheet or an AirBake. Lena’s been using one for almost 20 years. We have an original REMA that is 9.5” x 14” which fits the Force 10 and still allows air to circulate.

She dosent make biscuits but her scones are to die for.

The Admiral just flips the biscuits and they come out perfect every time.

Yup, I've tried that.
How does one flip a half baked chocolate chip cookie?

If you guys head up the Columbia I hope you'll give me a shout before you turn up the Snake. The first round of cold ones is on me.

I added a second helm seat last year on my flybridge. I did not want to drop my headliner, way too much work. I bought a Todd mounting ring (#6012) to bolt to the deck. The mounting ring is like a huge washer with about a 3” hole in the middle. Laid it out where I wanted the seat and drilled a 3” hole through the deck with a hole saw. The mounting ring has 6 mounting bolt holes. I took some 3/8” aluminum and made 6 pieces about 1” X 2” and drilled and tapped them. Insert the aluminum pieces through the hole in the deck. Bolted the mounting ring down to the deck using buytl tape to seal it. Then bolt the pedestal to the mounting ring. Worked great and I didn’t have to drop the headliner. Also if I want to get to it again, I just have to remove the 6 bolts that hold the pedestal to the mounting ring and it is off. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of the install, but it was easy.

Horns

While I am waiting for new pedestals, I installed new horns. Actually Train Chimes. The old air horns were loud and good quality (made in Italy) but they just didn't have that "HEY" factor. Installation of the horns wasn't to and then a 12Vdc air compressor. I installed a on/off switch for the compressor. The existing horn buttons on the bridge and salon were already properly wired.

The first time I hit the button was a big "WOW" factor. They are LOUD!!! I stood on the bow and recorded the blast and I almost dropped the phone.

On to the next project.....

If you guys are headed this direction, just to let you know we'll be out of town (Europe!) June 7-23rd. Also, July 12-15.


Just about any other time would work. Dilly Dilly, and I'll bring a bunch of Klondike Bars.

The horns are way cool, Tom. Too bad you didn't have them on when you were....conferring. ...with that pita sailboat from last summer that you kept running into. You could have crept up behind him, blasted the horns and scared the hell out of him!

Okay, I had to buy a set of 3 AirBake. One would have thought I had given a lady, in the marina office, gold. She had determined she needed more cookie sheets and in I walked. I gave her the large AirBake and the two smaller baking sheets. She was more than happy. Perfect timing for her.
I haven't had time to bake but, when I return to the boat, I shall try the cookie sheets.

Tom:

I am jealous of your ability to get things done in the winter! I too have an "adequate" set of horns, but "WOW" would be so much better. I like the idea of a 12v air compressor to drive them. Could you post the specs, including price, on the compressor you are using?
I have a set of Italian FIAMM air horns that I took from my first Motorhome when I upgraded it to HADLEY Truck horns. I have tried them on the boat, but the little 12v compressor that easily drove the existing horns would only drive one of them, so I have been looking for a solution. I have a small 120v compressor with me that I will try when I get it home, but 12v would be so much easier.
Thanks.

Kahlenberg

Hi Keith,

Not to push Tom's thread too far off-course...

Kahlenberg has some nice options AND a slick 12- volt air compressor. Some were installed on IRENE and they work well. I called Kahlenberg last week with a problem; they gave me specific instructions regarding how to maintain my diaphragms. It fixed my problem.

Good Luck
