Using an electric food dehydrator such as the American Harvest models create excellent foods for cruising. For example, using very very lean hamburger, cooking it, then dehydrating the results make for excellent hamburger additive in chili. Like taking food out of the freezer to thaw, the same "timing" applies to dehydrated food which often needs many hours to re-hydrate. So, for example, I'd take the dehydrated hamburger out and put it in a plastic container with a top, add water, at around noon for an evening meal.

I've included some articles with "recipes" that can be used by cruisers; one article is written for canoeists:

Article written for canoeist on drying food items:

This is a basic how to with some “recipes” on drying:

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.

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.

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.

Get the powdered eggs and some canned bacon, chop up some spuds and crack a beer and you have a 4 course meal for breakfast.

I see no need for powdered eggs on a 16 day trip.
