A source of heat
A very important aspect of cruising the Med is the possibility of setting off early in the morning and cruising for a couple of hours soaking up the sunshine with the warm sea breeze in your face then finding a calm place to anchor and settling down for a few hours sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and of course eating and drinking at some time. So what are the options? well I suppose lots really, but they are cold meals such as salads or sandwiches, nothing at all wrong with this but if cooking is a passion you need heat.....
Cooking onboard is a very satisfying experience as you tend to keep it simple and more often than not the meal only involves one pan
I don`t know if I told you this but we have on board one of those portable gas cooking stoves that are popular with campers, this proves invaluable as the built in cooker only runs off the mains when berthed, I have always thought this puzzling, do the boat design guys think you only cook on board when on the pontoon? I had thought about other options such as an inverter to power the electrics or a more robust semi permanent plumbed in gas solution, but one day I saw this little beauty at a boat show and as they say, the rest is history.
