Re: Plants on your boat
We had two hanging planters with lettuce growing in them from Florida as far as the SE part of French Polynesia. Very nice to have some fresh greenery every couple of days and we were in places where there were no stores. Then we were knocked down. Bad enough to have a cockpit full of water - we had a cockpit full of mud. I was forward adding lashings to the dink when it happened. By the time I got back to the cockpit my wife was bailing like mad with the first thing that came to hand - one of the planters with several drain holes in the bottom. The holes did not seem to matter very much, she was getting a lot of water back where it belonged. BTW, we did not replace the planters.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Ainia is back in North America for the first time since 2010. Currently in Long Island Sound.
