Re: Plants on your boat

First, remember what happened to Captain Bligh when he put all those breadfruit plants aboard the Bounty.

Second, if you must, I offer this:

(1) Remove and do not replace antifouling bottom paint.
(2) Put boat in water.
(3) Wait.
(4) Soon, you may harvest not only some of the most nutritious & tasty vegetables in the world, but also tasty, low-fat protein-filled barnacles.

...of course, you won't be sailing *quite* as fast as you're used to, but if you were in a hurry, you wouldn't be on a boat anyway.

I am intending on taking my Aloe. It's medicinal uses simply outweigh any problems in cruising with it aboard.

cats are a good companion to share any excess food.

Re: Plants on your boat

Naturalists allege that Felis Domestica originated in North African arid country. Why then are cats happy aboard sailboats and like to eat fish?

Well there is that old mouse and rat problem aboard vessels, so maybe Moggie saw a renewing food supply, plus new genes for her kittens, at every new port?

Re: Plants on your boat

Maybe catnip or catgrass would be welcome on some boats.

Excellent question.. do a search on sailnet about blaming it in the cat. They have been known to save or sink ships.

Anything goes wrong on the boat.. blame it on the cat. Cat never complains.
Anything out of place on the boat (left her good scissors on the floor) "Honey.. must have been the cat."

Cat goes everywhere with us.. he kayaks, jetskis, bikes.. Mostly just sits around tending the lines.

LOL.. describes a few months of this past summer well..

This plant survived 55 mph winds, heeling max to 25 degrees, 8-10 foot waves and various thunderstorms and down pours. After about 1000 miles, plant died unceremoniously at home when my wife forgot to water it.

Hanging from the stern seat, dead leaves fell off without messing the boat. Safety strap helped keep it in place.

Re: Plants on your boat

Herbs in a gimbaled or suspended pot in the galley may keep a boat wife happier. An orchid or two suspended under the Bimini also gives her something to think about besides your many faults. Get her a cat too.

Planters are nonsense except on a houseboat. But at least you won't have to fertilize and mow, fertilize and mow, fertilize and... recursion alert! a lawn nor cut the hedges.
