We don't typically have ice onboard, we save our limited freezer space for, (in our humble opinion), more important items, like meat, and ice cream. Lately however, we've taken to putting our two Yeti coolers onboard, and filling them with ice to keep drinks cold. This saves space in the refrigerators for other important items, like creamer for our coffee, and cheese.
We rarely have drinks that have ice in them, but with our recent run of hot weather, it was great to have a drink that was ice cold.
Our marina is right next to one of the local fish processor plants, and they're being a good community neighbor by supplying crushed ice for anyone who wants to shovel it into their containers. We have to keep in mind that this is not for consumption, only to keep things cold, like fish that I catch, if I ever catch one.

Whenever I put a fishing line in the water, I usually end up losing my bait to the crabs. I can even feel them pulling it off of the hook. Then I reel in the line, rebait it, put it back down, and the game starts again. It's depressing, everyone here catches fish, but me. You can't even buy it in the grocery store here, because everyone catches their own.

I'm trying to schedule a blog post again. We'll be out of cell range by Friday, and hopefully this will post to our blog automagically. Good luck.
As always, we enjoy hearing from you, either here in comments or on our Facebook Denali Rose Sailboat page.
