X10.

There are thing that is not worthy to voice your opinion. I am flexible and will try hard to follow the rules the captain set for his boat. Pay attention and learn something from each trip There are always some goods coming from each voyage even in the trip from Hell. It humbles you and is good for your soul.

The snack bag completely solves that problem. On longer passages it also lets me meter the snacks so we don't run out halfway through. Many people eat because they are bored, not because they're hungry.

A key is to keep the snack foods (like granola bars) out of the galley. That solves the problem of someone looking for a granola bar and wiping out the carrots and celery. There are oranges and apples in the snack bag, but apples for roast pork loin or kielbasa and sauerkraut are in the galley.

C'mon now. What's wrong with making snacks easy to find and separating the ingredients for meals?

Some people eat out of the freezer or cans on passage. That changes the dynamic.

Chicken Piccata for dinner, same as I make on delivery.

sail fast and eat well, dave

The snack bag was too small. We dedicated an entire locker to all those goodies. Now it's the treat locker!

Most of them don't stay closed if rummaged about. *grin* Lock-n-Lock makes a good one that stays closed under most circumstances; you can find them on-line. My point is that lots of people digging around in a boat fridge leads to a mess, thus the value of a snack bag.

Re: Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

Don't like fridge opened too much. Wastes electricity beyond getting things broken. Found must less electricity used now we have separate fridge and freezer. Wife is super on loading both. Very thoughtful. loads last days food first and so on with first days food and daily needs most accessible. Truly an artist.
Had locker built/wired to take microwave. Multiple cruisers told us micro wave a waste on a cruising boat if it actually cruises. Get a small pressure cooker instead. Never put micro in. Use that locker for all goodies and some real food that can be made easily when on night watch. Folks have one place to go and are not messing around in the dark waking people up. Just saying.
