Good to have. Item #1

We have been liveaboards for more than a year now. Half the time in Sweden, even wintertime.

We will list some useful items, here is #1.

Air fryer

We use it to a lot of our cooking and baking when we are in marinas and have access to shore power.

Chocolate and almond cookies
Swedish Semlor
Sesame chicken

Potatoes, fries of course but we have also used it for, among other things, chicken, sausage, bacon, hash and fish fingers. Baking bread and cookies also works fine. Most of the things you make in an oven or a fryer is possible to make in an air fryer.

Is saves a lot of propane and usually we use it in the cockpit to avoid smelly fumes inside the boat.

Las Palmas

We were heading for Lanzarote but the wind was stronger than forecasted and more on the nose so after a few hours of uncomfortable sailing we decided to go for plan B, changed course and headed for Las Palmas instead.

Leaving Santa Cruz de Tenerife

Instead of arriving at Lanzarote in broad daylight we arrived at Marina Las Palmas in the middle of the night. A lot of lights from the city and very difficult to see the entrance to the marina but with GPS and plotters that’s no problem.

We were lucky to get a berth right away and did not have to anchor first, waiting for an available spot.

The anchorage and the marina

Las Palmas is a busy city, a lot of people and a lot of traffic. The old town is really nice and so is the beach Las Canteras.

We went for walks and even bicycle rides.

The market

In December when we were in Puerto Rico it was impossible to rent a car but now we rented a car twice and went up in the mountains, went hiking and looking at almond trees.

Of course there were a lot of socialising with other yachties and some boat maintenance. Marina Las Palmas is a very sheltered, has good service and is cheap. Some boats never leave…
