One of our local artists is Patti Brown. She does a type of art we find very appealing. In addition to wall art she creates a variety of trays. When we saw this beauty at a recent show of hers, we knew it would be perfect for Mahalo.
Here is her website: liquidcells.com/
Mahalo has an induction cooktop. Cooks fast and is a breeze to clean up. But I often find myself needing to start a generator just to use the cooktop. So I got this nifty portable induction cooktop, which can be powered by the inverter.
There are smaller, low profile units. But reviewers said they had loud fans. And I don't want one where a pan is going to hang over or cover the controls.
This would also be useful for people with smaller inverters. You can set the wattage used!
Another bonus is being able to take it up to the flybridge, where I have plenty of electrical sockets. Like if I want to boil some corn to go with whatever we are bbq'ing, it's very convenient. Like most things, got it on Amazon!
Always a great day when you have a beautiful lady on board. In this case, 95 year old Ruby! She is sharp as a tack. And she's from Spearfish, SD! One of my old buddies married a woman from Spearfish back when the population was only about 1,000.
Ruby is the mom of one of my boating buddies. Was so great having her aboard. She says her favorite thing about Mahalo is the wood work.
I asked her the secret of such a long life. She pointed to her head and said "It's all up here!"
We had some great chats, what a love. Many more wonderful years, Ruby!
