Provisioning the old way

Now if you wanted fresh meat offshore, you had to carry live animals with you along with their food until you decide to have them for dinner.
Fresh eggs? Need to carry a laying hen or two.
Fresh pork or goat meat? t'is the same carry them live until you need them for your dinner.
So along with the pens for those animals you assign the junior member of your vessel to clean up what ever comes out of the back end of the animals also, but he/she does gives the eggs to the cook.

So the question is: Will you provision the old fashion way or carry canned meats and do a lot of fishing??
And do you know any other old style way of provisioning your boat? And do you use it?

I hope to be cruising soon and I am starting to feel somewhat better. I hope the doctor's fixed my problems. That being said, many of us are going from working full time to cruising. There can be a lot of empty hours within a day once you get to, where you were going. Fishing can fill in many of those empty hours and as a reward, give you something fresh and wonderful to eat.

Now I'm worried about why my wife always wants to bring the dog along.

Wouldn't a duck be a better bird to have on board than a chicken?

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

When I cruise for a long time, I normally bring "live stock" with me...

we normally set sail with a crew of 7, and arrrive with 3 or 4.

Depending on the lenght of the passage, I have arrived on my own in some instances.

I start with the bow man...

You won't have a well trained & loyal crew if you keep inviting them to be the main course for dinner...

NO NO Boasun, you've got it backwards!!!

By only eating the least competent members of the crew we manage to increase motivation and attention astronomically !!!!

But much like on Klingon vessels, the captain must watch his back ................

No I have it right! Only the truely incompendent are used for fish bait. They last longer that way.
