Re: Slow Racing or Fast Cruising?
I assume you can use saltwater for the boiling since the food is in the bags (won't transfer more salt into them) - but am not sure about that. Any advice?
I think you'll find you can.
We've often used saltwater to boil veggies in and to wash up afterwards (with a final freshwater rinse), but it's a good idea to restrict this practice to a mile or three offshore..
