Currently we’re in Bahía de Caráquez (Ecuador), taking Zingaro apart! All of a sudden we’ve got quite a bit of space here. We removed the fridge and gave it to the local dockhand. He didn’t have one.

Now we’re going to design a chart table / editing table that fits in right where the fridge was. We have to find a very space-economic design for a desk with an integrated chair. We only have about a meter of space. Any ideas?

No fridge anymore … ?

Seriously, a propane fridge is a horrible idea for a cruising boat. It’s hot (in an already hot place), it’s heavy (extra parts for the propane system), and the #1 reason: it uses an entire 20lb propane tank in 2-3 weeks. Usually on cruising boats a tank of propane lasts 3 months. Plus when you ran out of propane there was no warning, everything just went bad, water all over the floor …

Unfortunately there are no 12v fridges in Ecuador, and a 100% import tax – it would cost around ~$2000 to get one here. Not having refrigeration sucks, but we’ll deal with it. We are happy it’s off the boat!
