Provisioning -vs- doing it ourselves

Have a great time.

As for provisioning, I agree with several of the responses. Since my wife & I starting chartering over 12 years ago we did the provisioning one time. It was great to have everything there when you arrived or shortly thereafter but man did they over do it. Too much food, had to leave alot behind. Since that time my wife and I during the planning stage check to see what will be available at each stop we intend to make and go from there. We now purchase daily or stock for no more then two stops. Of course we do stock certain items, (hic) and bottled water in case. Most places depending on where you are chartering have stores available.
Suggest you obtain a Cruising Guide for the area where you and the wife intend to sail. Very, very helpful.
Again good sailing.
