We are currently cruising our Islander Freeport 36 sailboat in Mexico. We have been extensively documentating our Islander Freeport outfitting for this adventure. We will now be reporting what of our outfitng is of value, what works and what is not of value.
We have a three-towel system in the galley - one color for hands,
one color for counter top and one color for drying dishes.
We try to keep them separate, hence the three different colors. We do this in order to keep the galley as germ-free as possible. These are microfiber which allows them to dry quickly.These were purchased from Amazon.com also!
Some of the things missing are the bicycle conversion kit - a 36 pound box with a kit to make a bicycle into a motorized bike; this is for a friend in Mazatlán. Also our 85 pound 12000 BTU HVAC unit we had repaired at the factory. Our new paddleboard cover and a few other things.
These are for the little bottles. One of two propane bottles we have had a bad valve.
So that leaves us with one bottle. About 2.6 gal of propane. They are 10lb bottles and they are composite. We made our own propane locker and so it does not fit other bottles. So for now we will use an adaptor to put a small bottle on then use the one 2.6 gallons and when that needs filling we will use the propane adapter so we can put on a small disposable bottle to make coffee etc. Where the other 2.6 gal bottle went we will use a small disposable bottle. This new system will get us by for a season until we get another propane bottle that will fit.
We had thought that we would need two smaller composite bottles in case we needed to take one on a bus or something. That has never been the case, at least on the Mexican Riviera..there has always been propane fill up available.
