A much easier alternative is simply to use vegan milk, all you need is a blender, water, and some kind of nut, like almond, coconut or your choice. Coconut cream (coco milk concentrated), unlike powdered milk tastes great and is good for you.
How about a pesco vegan nut?


Cows are not people, and trust me having owned and raised a few they do not mind at all if I take the milk. You are free to drink nut milk if you like, but don't you feel sorry for the trees the nuts came from? I mean you are EATING the future of the forest.

No way, some Sailnetter will anchor his boat in my lake!

Not sure Coconuts will grow here next to all these big buildings.

And that kind of farm is what drove me to getting a livestock barge in the first place.

I think coconuts go good with shrimp, but I think maybe they would be a hazard to grow on the boat, those things start falling on your deck or your head and it is going to hurt.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

I guess quite obviously I wasn't recommending growing trees on the boat. Nor was anyone except maybe the dome-guy recommending growing hay on the boat.
Could get a lot more milk per weight if say had a cow's weight in coconut cream.
Also can have reverse-osmosis water, so it's nice and pure, good for drinking.

Nuts fall off of trees, and a large portion are meant to be eaten by animals and humans, who can transport some to be planted elsewhere.

Kinda diverged from the original point of if there are anchoring issues,
though I guess my point is that there are vegan alternatives to all livestock,
and for what there aren't (b12,vit D, DHA, EPA) there is always fish and seafood (pesco).

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Are starboard cattle and port cattle different species, or can they interbreed?

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Actually it would be a fascinating engineering challenge to build an ocean craft that would be completely self contained for an extended range, something like a 100 years maybe.

That would be really challenging.

In Waterworld did Kevin Costner ever get hauled out and have some anti-fouling painted on? Oh right, no, it was all water, no haul outs!


How would you maintain a vessel that could never, ever leave the water?
