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.
Sitting in CYAN in Venezuela for now

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
