Why yes professor, the dish is called "Fritattas de Bacalao" but I didn't want to seem like a pedantic jerk flaunting my admittedlylimited command of Spanish. I should think that any mild fish would be a good candidate but I'm no expert.

I know there will be naysayers but what I'm really looking for is positive experiences of voyaging on a budget.

I'd love to hear about the "work here and there to be quite easy" - positive stories about how it's done are always interesting and welcome

I have accidentally dropped a bit of canned venison on the floor and it dried rock hard. Maybe drying after cooking would be an option.

I have read that you can dry eggs by cooking them first, then breaking them up ,drying and crumbling the cooked ,dried eggs.
Drying oysters is easy, and they keep forever ,for stews etc.
I have dried a lot of fish at sea.
Mmmm --- good old powdered eggs omelets, Navy style --- they start turning green after the 3rd day so eat up --- green eggs and ham is not so appetizing as you might hope.

The stroganoff & turkey tetrazzini are pretty good & these guys sometimes have bargains on bulk buys.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

dried or salt cod is great...but not found everywhere...

hence my dry cured tuna recipe which can be made anywhere especially on a 2 week plus voyage

we make bacalao croquetas at the restaraunt as a specialty item...at the tapas bar nice with some classic tomato sauce or saffron aioli! hell yeah!

mmmmmmmmmmmm! yum

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Bacalao is fairly common down this way and I'd have thought dried fish would be available in most of Asia. Though except for recipes hat call for it .... Bacalao Tortilla is a great example ... I'm not sure why anyone would go for dried fish when so much fresh seafood is available at quite reasonable prices or you could even catch it yourself.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I do not understand how one can cruise on $500 per month when the clearing in fees for many places such as the Bahamas are $350 to $500. Unless cruising does not involve leaving the United States. Am I missing something?

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

yes you are missing something, unless on a huge time constraint you dont check into countries every month... like mentioned many times before when at sea or on some reef or anchorage where money is not needed or usefull you dont spend 500 or any for that matter, thats why cruising budgets done in a monthly manner like you would on land are not really objective...or that useful

I've been able to find work all over the world but on this occasion I was in the US I sailed into a bay I had never had any desire to visit. It turned out to be so wonderful I came back and am wintering here. Within a day on the island a got a job that I was completely unqualified for paying $25 per hour for easy fun work. Pretty boring right This year I'm going to try my luck at photographing boats for people. Way too much money in this part of the world.
