Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?
Bene, I am sure that you have also given some thoughts about the safety of your herd (err.. crew) with hefty dyneema lifelines and a good and easy to clean non-skid? Also, a bimini to shelter them from the sun?
If I may suggest, consider taking a donkey to help you on supermarket trips and to to carry the feed when re-provision becomes necessary - perhaps the canvas shop that make your bimini can also create some neat sumbrella pouches. Donkeys are small, don't care much for water and are great load carrying animals and he will be good company for Bessie and the chicks.
Have you named your vessel yet?
