Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?
There was a guy I once read about who did the whole cruising with livestock thing, actually more than one since I read Noah's sailing log too. I think that other guy was named Christopher or Cristobal, depending on what language I was reading about him, he actually went cruising with two other captains on three boats, and they anchored somewhere down in the Caribbean with not much trouble other than the normal stuff at the time when they were sailing. I think the names of those boats were something like Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria, and they seemed to have overcome the anchorage issues. Of course I would not want to go it in the same way they did, I mean no motor, no ventilation fans and I think the boats were a little beamy and the rigging was not what I would prefer, too many crew required to handle the vessel.
I would go for a nice brown swiss, the milk production is good, the fat content is about perfect for making ice cream and butter, and the milk is just great. When she gets old then bossy will have some great steaks and a nice hide to use as a bimini cover, or perhaps a nice warm blanket if you leave the fur on.
It is good that we can poke fun at ourselves, otherwise our egos might become overinflated.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
