Importance of freezer for cruising?

The latest issue of ''Good Old Boat'' has an interesting article about canning foods. Even if one has a freezer, canned foods would minimize dependence upon it.
Just a thought.

Importance of freezer for cruising?

We cruised the Bahamas & Florida several years ago with only an ice box. There is no ice in the Bahamas.

We recently cruised the same area again with an Adler Barbour refrigerator unit. We had to run the engine every two days to charge batteries.

I will never go again without a refrigerator. When it''s hot, a cool drink is magical. Cold white wine is heavenly. Smoked sausage and well packed cheese last forever under refrigeration. I don''t think a freezer is necessary for me.

We cruised the Bahamas last winter and had a refrig w/small freezer. We used the Frigoboat evaporator with a keel cooler.

Our average usage was about 35 amps. We had a freezer packed with meat that still had frozen stuff in it when we got back.

Rich,

Exactly what size frig & freezer do you have and how well insulated are they? Everything I have looked at estimates usage at 60amps.

Thanks
