Non-perishable food to keep on the boat?

I'd like to stock the boat up with a couple of weeks of non-perishable food. So I'd like to solicit suggestions. I already came up with the following :

Canned stew
Canned Chilli
Canned vegetables
Canned fruit
Canned custard and Heinz puddings (!)
Canned and instant soup
Cookies
Instant oatmeal
Cup noodles and similar
Instant rice
Boil-in-the-bag curry
Quick-cooking pasta
Pasta sauce
Tea bags
Coffee
Long-life milk
Cereal (individual portions)

Thanks!

For what reason are you stocking this food? I think that would make a difference as to what gets stocked.

Are you cruising or is this just so you can lug fewer bags to the boat every weekend?

Canned stew, chili and particularly vegetables are nearly inedible! IMHO.

There are some great soups in the UHT boxes now. Not to mention milk.

Granola
Pasta
Pasta sauce
Peanut butter
Saltines

Not sure of the purpose here.

I like keeping baking supplies. Flour, baking powder, crisco , cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, brown sugar, salt. Nothing like smelling something baking on a boat.

Good question.

1) To have snacks & food available when I go there for a day or two, and for weekend sails.

2) As an emergency resource, in case of an earthquake etc. making the house uninhabitable.

You might want to look at the freeze dried food for backpackers. We have 6 dinners for 4 stored away for emergency use. They last for years and taste OK.

canned tuna or salmon? For condiments, you can acquire those individual packets of ketchup and mayonnaise and pickles, etc from fast food places.
