Not to wander too far from the OP's original point, but I think diet will be the hardest part of the journey. All those dry pasta meals look great on paper, but try eating them for a few days in a row, that is about how long it takes for all the salt in them to make it feel like your skin is trying to crawl off of you. I think it would take quite a lot of changes for most people to be able to cook well enough to survive for a year at sea without stopping for supplies. No matter how much you think you like Bush's baked beans, at some point you're not going to be able to stand the thought of eating another can of them.

What are you pretending not to know ?
