You seem to have more than enough food but there's a couple of things you might want to consider. First, as has been mentioned, take eggs. Really fresh eggs will last a long time even without refrigeration and eggs are easy to cook -- of course if you don't like eggs then forget it. The other is you should have planned a number of one-pot meals where you can just throw the stuff into the pot, clamp the pot to the stove (unless you have a SeaSwing or equivalent) and get quick hot food with a minimum of fuss. It's best to have a pressure cooker which not only makes cooking faster but also has a lid that will stay on literally come hell or high water.
When you get in any kind of seaway you probably want to prepare hot meals with as little work as possible.

I see you have a gazillion responses here however I feel I MUST comment. Anyone who cooks a sockeye and eats it should be shot at sunrise from the yardarm ............ ;o) Sockeye Salmon should be consumed in only one way.
SMOKE IT BABY .............. ;o)
Smoked Sockeye is beyond delightful and one of the best commodities to have on a cruis --- HOWEVER --- 1/2 a fish well not be enough. U -R gonna need at least 2 fish. Split them and remove the bone and smoke them yourself in a "little smoker". Keep it in a plastic bag and use it for "nibblin" while drinkin beer. PURE HEAVEN ..... LOL.

This is quite a lot of food for 16 days. Unless you are 300 lbs, or think your voyage may become unduly extended, you only need about 2 lbs (or less) of food per day.
I took a 2 week backpacking trip, and planned on 1.5 lbs of backpacking-style food per day. By the end of the trip I still had enough food for five or so days.
This is walking with a backpack, much tougher than sailing.

|speciald||We like freezing pre-prepared meals in vacuum bags at home and using them to cool food in the freezer. We make one bowl meals like stew, spagetti,etc. and eat our hot meals at mid-day when everyone is usually awake. We usually make 8-10 days of meals before we go on extended trips.|
