2 great days, 2 great songs, 2 great meals.

Finally completed this video of New Years Eve / New Years Day sail. It was my first overnighter using the Penthouse so I took a leisurely sail down to my local Island to stay the night. I also wanted to try out a simple camping recipe and also show how to knock up the simplest yet best breakfast ever.

Hope you enjoy it.

Awesome video. I think you should be hitting Hobie up for your own Hobie kayak cooking show.

Thanks mate. I might start up a thread on cooking just to share ideas. There's something about cooking without the mod cons.

Thanks for taking us with you and sharing your meals, Slaughter. That was great!

Might we be seeing a new series on PBS, The Adventure Islander Sailing Gourmet?

Think I'll go make myself some breakfast. Hummm...A good bowl of mush will do.

Best video post I have seen - should carry a warning "do not watch if hungry". Your new ride looks great, I think you should change your handle to Cecil B Slaughter. Great work mate.

Fantastic, Mate. Your year's off to a great start.

Got a map of the trip?

The enjoyment of videoing and cooking will always run 2nd to the enjoyment of sailing, but I see it as an added bonus. Your nice comments and encouragement is the icing on the cake. Talking about cakes …..Hmmmm.

I really enjoy the cooking though. I spose it’s not so much the cooking but the challenge of trying to create a restaurant type meal with the limited resources we have when we do, ‘what we do’. And as you can see, with a little bit of preparation the night before you leave, having a great meal can be quicker and easier to prepare than the old stable beans on toast. I’m only a mug cook, and if I can do it, anyone can. As I said to Cows, I might start a cooking thread which I’m sure will help us all share ideas. What do you think ?

I didn’t do a map of the trip NOHUHU, but I’ll get one together to give you an idea. It certainly wasn’t a big trip like the ones you blokes do but it was relaxing. I asked my wife a couple of days before what she wanted to do for New Years Eve. She, like me, wasn’t too fussed at doing anything, so the decision to go to the Island was an easy one.

Wow this is the best TI video I've seen so far, I too love good cuisine when sailing and camping I usually bring spices and ingredients to cook my catch
I have no problem at all fishing for my camping cooking, there is nothing like fresh caught fish for good cooking. i was planing to make a video of my sailing and camping trip next weekend, I plan to catch some mangrove snapers and maybe catfish but I have no experience as film director to film the cooking ha ha.
Your video is the best hands down.
Is pulbah Island a protected area like a National park or something?

Thanks for that Gil. Yep. We have a lot of National Parks down this way which is a good thing, in the fact that it keeps places clean, tidy and natural, but it also has its down side in that you can’t just camp anywhere. That is the number 1 reason why a few of us have designed our hammocks so that we can sleep onboard a few feet out from shore. That way we are not breaking any laws. Don’t know about the gas stove in a National Park though. I may have to research that one ( or I may have to turn a blind eye, which is a philosophy that has served me well over the years ).

Slaughter, you know you can camp anywhere below mean high tide mark and you are still technically at sea? I was surprised you didn't pull the boat a bit further up on the land.

Reason was Chris that the bottom had some oysters on rocks under the weeds that wasn't obvious on the video. And throughout the night the tide dropped and I could hear scrapping. So I had to get my feet wet and move home a bit further out. I now have the rope knots set up so that I can just unclip the kayak, and pull it in or out along the rope, and then reclip without getting wet.
