Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

I initially ignored this thread as I thought surely you were pulling our collective legs, but after reading all the astute recommendations and advice you received I think by golly you must be serious. However, you need to put some more thought into this proposal. Remember the early immigrants to Minnesota suffered many diseases as a result of keeping the livestock in their living quarters. So maybe you need to commission a tow, you know a barge. The barn could be down below. And the deck could be sodded for pasture. A dome over it all could produce the required precipitation to sustain the hay field and bovine hydration. Get set up for artificial insemination and you could add milk fed veal to your product line. The space saved in the mother ship would allow installation machinery for butter, cheese and yogurt in addition to the very cleverly conceived ice cream in addition to an "abattoirs" for preparing the meat products. The vertical integration of your marine borne farm operation could become a closed cycle of production thereby making the ideal vessel for fleeing Armageddon allowing you to pass the end times in the old fashioned glory of the family farm, just like "Little house on the Sea".

Not yet. Got any ideas? (Extra points for a matching dinghy name.)

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

The whole problem is when one of the cows turns renegade then we're dealing wiith Bartolemoo Roberts or Christopher Moody or some such pirate as pictured below.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Just in case people start asking, "How do you get the cow onto the boat?"

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Will you be using a Plow or Cloven type anchor? Either way, I'd recommend securing the rhode with a cow hitch.

Funny. Either of those is better than putting a steak in the ground.

Genius. 1500 lbs of rail meat. Rail beef, technically.
