I need help. This may not be news to some of you. Indeed, there may be cheers ringing out across the British Isles at this confession. In which case, I fear I am about to disappoint you.
I need help with the serious matter of boaty what not and nautical do dah. You see, since my little *ahem* accident with the inverter, I can no longer use either my hand held blender (annoying but bearable) or my electric whisk (another matter entirely).
Today, the Captain gallantly offered to buy a new one as we were passing a chandlery on the Stainforth & Keadby Canal. There was only one in stock. It was a monster. But while our old, now deceased, inverter seemed happy enough to power my domestic accoutrements, until it died that is, this hulking great beast tripped at the first attempt. In the end we left it.
The Captain is now suggesting I may have to manage without my power assisted kitchen aids and is thinking of buying a less powerful inverter. I know nothing of these things, but surely those of you who live aboard or regularly cook aboard don’t do everything by hand, do you? Please tell me you don’t!
I need details of both inverters and whisks etc that are being used successfully. The Captain will want the technical low down so spare me no jargon! Please help, I baked a cake entirely by hand yesterday. It is not an experience I want to repeat …
