firYep, this will be weird to some of you,,,,but to me it’s a milestone. Two weeks ago we figured out how to get the propane working on Tulum V and cooked our very first meal on our own boat and on the stove. A normal process for most people in the world and a very small thing that most don’t think about,,,but on a boat this can be pretty complex. First, is there propane left,,,,there was. Next, is the actuator working to get said propane to the stove,,,,it did. Last, does the stove work,,,,it did. So we cooked,,,,a great pot of rice to go with the barbecued chicken!
Ohh yeah,,,and the boat got the final word. The propane cylinders are nearly empty,,,but there’s a hefty cable and cable lock without a key,,,,so I get to cut it off next time I’ve down there. Wish we had thought about asking for that key! This is why I love sailboats; there’s always something to keep me challenged and make me think through problem sets.
