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.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

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?

It would have to be made of gold.

Thinking of a few of my mooring neighbors
research aspects of no bottom maintenance every year,
that or they are trying to cultivate an entire ecosystem
to provide endless substinance.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Since Kevin could breath under water he wouldn't have any trouble scrubbing his aluminium tri clean.If you don't scrub you get a crop of goose barnacles which are excellent as surf and turf if you brought the cow . No cow? Supplement the chicken in some cacciatore This is best done on a Hunter.
