Perhaps you would like to contribute to Cruiser Log. Feel free to start threads or to add opinions to those already in existence.

Call us venal if you wish, but while we don't really mind being used to promote your blog, we expect some input in return.

Regards.

Auzzee - Absolutely! I only recently joined, and it wasn't only to promote the blog.

Very amusing blog post, I just sprayed wet muesli all over my screen.

Don't forget the wiki, too. A lot of the USA especially the parts you're coming from and sailing to -- East Coast, down to the Caribbean, are really lagging behind for information in the wiki. Any contributions will be gladly received.

We really need a page in the wiki about holding tanks. Then again, on second thoughts, we really don't. :P

On a related subject, 'Getting Rid of Boat Odors' by Peggy Hall is a must have...even if 80% of the English speaking world knows how to spell odour.

I have a flexible holding tank inside a lazarette, that's been known to pong a bit. A couple of vanilla beans purchased in French Polynesia, dropped in the lazarette alongside the holding tank, work marvellously.

deltatbabel - Wiki? Where is the wiki? The vanilla bean idea is a good one, I think. Beats the hell out of an air freshener!

Also, sorry about the mess on your screen!
