Lightbulb the best can treatment!!!

I made this up and it works like a charm...I have tested it for months now.

I got 500 ziplock bags [made for sewing machine parts]...very heavy duty on Ebay for $13...packaging catagory.

I put one regular can or 2 small veggie cans [1 serves us 2] in each bag with about a tablespoon of silica gel cat litter. Not a speck of rust and I reuse them with the silica litter still good.

This silica cat litter is great...I used it in all our spares when I vacuum packed them.

You can't buy regular ziplock bags as cheap as Ebay if you keep looking.

Just wanted to say thanks for the tip, I'll give this a try, sounds good. I'm also on a 38, it's a Hughes and also getting ready to embark on a circumnavigation. I've learned the hard way on two gulf crossings that's this or something like this is very necessary. If you know a gal/mate or meet one, I'm looking. Feel free to add me to a blog about your trip. Jon
