That is more like what I have in mind. The provisioning line item is over $800. I can't see even four of us eating that much food in only 7 days.
A suggestion was to take our own dried herbs and spices, which I will do. Maybe as Tempest suggested I'll also take coffee and tea (must.have.morning.tea). But I really hope that it's possible to buy local food as we go, prepared or not.
Great idea about asking at the boatyards.
