English term or phrase: Coffee grinder pedestal
Hola a todos,

tengo una duda con este término que se trata de una parte de un velero. En concreto, lo necesito para localizar dónde se coloca la publicidad en un velero en una regata. "the right to branding on the grinder pedestal of the Competitors yachts..."

No osbtante, no le encuentro mucho sentido.

Os agradecería un montón cualquier tipo de ayuda.

Un saludo,

Ruth

los veleros de competición tienen uno o dos grandes, que se llaman "coffe grinder" montados sobre pedestales
lógicamente, encontrarás googlehits como "molinillo de café"
