Hi folks,
As per the title, I'm interested in whether we'll be able to use our bosch tassimo pod machine on our upcoming week on the boat.
Any one have experience that'll help?

Thanks

Dave

Very unlikely unless connected to shore power.They use 1200 watt which is a lot for boat inverters to manage .

Best to ask the yard first.

A great deal to be said for a good old fashioned cafeteria on a boat!

There is no guarantee of there being mains electricity available on a mooring.

I'd say don't bother taking up packing space with it.

Out of interest - do you take it away with you normally? And what made you think you'd be able to use it on the boat ? Is it because the hire yards advertise some boats as having a 240 v system ? And was there an assumption that this was going to be available to you most of the time?

I've had some interesting conversations with holidaymakers this last summer or two regards their expectations and so I'm genuinely interested.  

The cafetière suggestion is not a bad one if you want something better than instant coffee. We used to take one on every self catering holiday including hire boats.

Yo Dave
If that coffee floats your boat bring the gadget and you will be able to plug it in somewhere on a shore power.( The inverter might do it with the engine running.)  Its your holiday enjoy your coffee. Smile
Kindest Regards

Oh great. We will now have people running their engines at moorings just to get a coffee machine working.

Plllleeeeeasse! No more. It's bad enough as it is with folks running engines more than ever, and earlier and earlier. And by-law 84 requires that:

The master of a vessel shall not permit the vessel to emit smoke or fumes or make any noise or nuisance which gives reasonable grounds for annoyance to any other person.

It's a boat! It's just a boat. With limitations. Engines are for propulsion!

PS, agreed, no running engines just for an early morning cuppa, or a trouser press for that matter.

You should check with your hire company as only certain electrical items are permitted to be used on board.

I guess this is the modern generation's expectations of holidays.    This is where , give it a while and folk who know about boats will be back on the Broads.   I would have thought first thoughts would be, have I got enough water on board to drink.   We take the 5L bottles of water, as if you were ever get near to a water point, and I have my doubts at the moment you can once they are emptied fill them and use for boiling veg etc (did I say boiling veg, whats that ) and for washing up.   You would be surprised how the water on board is soon used up.     There is nothing wrong with a quick wash up and down in preference to showering every day.    

A lovely thought having fresh coffee with its associated aroma first thing in the morning but for the time being I am sure there are excellent alternatives which will suffice for the duration of the holiday.

Essentials in my view.

Mineral Water
Matches
Frying pan
Sharp knife
Can opener
Bottle opener
Wooden spoon
Torches



Women dont nag they just
point
things out...

Hi Dave
I had better stop posting on this forum as it seems to upset many. I have been boating for 50years and owned one for over 35 of them and in that time rightly or wrongly I have learned to use an electric kettle and please pity me a microwave if and when we can.
It saves me using the car to run miles and miles looking for gas bottles that at the moment don't exist. If I do use gas I am burning a fossil fuel.
We have an immersion heater ( Oh the decadence ) so never run our engine at a mooring, if we are going to moor wild or with no electric hook up then Old Marge is in the shower on the way and I jump in when we moor using the hot water that the calorifier has provided.
Our days of rubbing our bits and pieces down with a dock leaf around the camp fire are over.
Hope you have a fantastic holiday and I am sorry to any that I have upset.
Regards
Parge
