Re: Meat & Potato Man

Hello Sunshine,

I would be very careful processing your own food ( canned ) for an ocean voyage. Meat is low acid and requires special processing.

On the other hand there are a variety of commercially processed foods that would hold up well. Canned Hams, Beef Stews, Chunk white chicken. Things like bacon and dried sausage hold up well for several days..or more.

What is the float plan? how long will your longest trip between ports be? I think that will help determine what you need to plan for.
