Raw Vegans?

Wondering if anyone else out there with a boat that could use could help for the ride. I'm in 'new england' now but looking to sail to the pacific and to a tropical area.

Re: Raw Vegans?

If you are serious about going ocean sailing, I'd lose the vegan stuff. It's hard enough to produce interesting meals at sea that everyone can enjoy w/o having someone on a special, very restricted diet onboard.
Thinking that one can keep fresh foods for even 2000 miles on a 3000 mile crossing is a bit far from reality without a nice, climate controlled, walk in freezer. Canned foods and things w/lots of preservatives are your friends on long passages and things like Cabin Bread pizza the special meals.
I think you have a choice to make.

Re: Raw Vegans?

No thanks. Things like Raw Walnuts, Almonds, Peanuts, Dates, Figes, unripe avocadoes and other fruit don't need refrigeration or chemical preservatives. You can also jar raw kraut, kimchi, pickles without refrigeration. Have a good one.

Re: Raw Vegans?

You can also freeze fruit and nuts if necessary

Re: Raw Vegans?

In 9 years I have met a few people who are vegetarians. But no raw vegans.

It will be difficult to find a boat liking that and wishing for crew.

PS you are right about unripe avocados. They keep well for the few days till ripe.

Some onions last some of the long Pacific passages.

Dream on. I tried to carry avocados from Hawaii to Tahiti for planting there and at most they lasted 10 days w/o refrigeration.
What do you have to offer a boat owner, other than your dietary demands?
Flexibility is the key to traveling on small craft and getting along with people, and you don't sound like a very flexible person, from your posts.

I'm really sorry we can't tell you what you want to hear w/o lying to you.
I've taken crew from docks all over the world and sailed the seas for over half a century. I personally wouldn't take the chance of being stuck at sea for long periods w/someone who has any special dietary needs or is so different from the rest of the crew.
It is what it is, sorry.

Re: Raw Vegans?

As long as you promise not to bite my nuts... OK, maybe that was not very helpful, but I could not resist...
I have been a long term vegetarian and that is not a big deal on a long passage, but I would not think of imposing my dietary requirements on the rest of the crew, unless I brought all my grub with me.

Re: Raw Vegans?

In my opinion, avocados go straight from unripe to inedible.

Wasn't there a Japanese guy that crossed the Atlantic in a super tiny boat that only ate nuts? I can't find the reference but I remember seeing a picture.
