Then there are mongeese, or mongooses, whatever. Much like weasels. But then, it didn't work in Hawaii because the mongooses are diurnal and rats are nocturnal and never the twain did meet. Then you'd have mongeeses and rats aboard eating you out of house and home. Thank god they don't drink. Imagine weasels (Or mongooses) with names like "Snake", "Johnny D" or "Everlasting Mooney"!

Sorry, on my second glass of Rye and listening to you-know-who

Perhaps he was wearing something to capture the methane and using it to power his stove....CNG is mostly methane, isn't it...

vega1860 We have a friend who sailed a round trip, solo, from Washington to Hawaii and back on nothing but canned beans and beer.

Mmm, then you can eat the fat weasels. But only if you have a whole village of 'em.

Yofy weasels.. who wrote that? weevils to be sure..... isn't it amazing how fast the guys jumped in on that?

Bene505 Two weevils crept from the crumbs. 'You see those weevils, Stephen?' said Jack solemnly.
'I do.'
'Which would you choose?'
'There is not a scrap of difference. Arcades ambo. They are the same species of curculio, and there is nothing to choose between them.'
'But suppose you had to choose?'
'Then I should choose the right-hand weevil; it has a perceptible advantage in both length and breadth.'
'There I have you, ' cried Jack. 'You are bit -- you are completely dished. Don't you know that in the Navy you must always choose the lesser of two weevils? Oh ha, ha, ha, ha!'

Regards,
Brad

Those weasels are the type that do not replenish the beer cooler.

OK, as to weevils - now everyone quote the line from "Master and Commander."

(Its healthier too.) You can sprout your own greens. As you travel you can buy local produce. It really isn't difficult to eat well on board while cruising. And if you are living aboard on the hook, you certainly can grow some vegetables and herbs, much like you would in window boxes.

A diet of constant dehydrated foods is not a healthy one. Just ask the astronauts.
