Considering a sailing adventure to Mexico? Just look at how engrossed that guy is in the book! Grab a copy of the Unauthorized Guide to Sailing in Mexico, and you too can find yourself sitting on a Mexican dock with an oversized (but very attractive) hat.

no-spill diesel fueling with the safety siphon

It only took me five years of spilling diesel on the decks to finally fall in love with the Safety Siphon. For under $10 I got two of them from Amazon. One for water, and one for fuel. Spilling a few cups of fresh water on the deck isn't the end of the world, but a diesel spill can be a real pain in the neck. It stinks, it stains, and it's not like the stuff is free.

Pop the Safety Siphon in, jiggle it a few times, and the siphon starts. It's just that easy. You can sit there and watch it pour, rather than attempt to man handle the damn jerry jugs like a display of performance art.

I have been looking for a means to transfer my cleaning fluid from the 5gallon heavy containers it comes in to my smaller squirt bottles. I bought one of these and it's great! Thanks so much. I ordered a couple for the boat too.
