Weasels are rarely an issue on boats.... WEEVILS are an issue.

As you travel you can buy local produce. It really isn't difficult to eat well on board while cruising. And if you are living aboard on the hook, you certainly can grow some vegetables and herbs, much like you would in window boxes.
A diet of constant dehydrated foods is not a healthy one. Just ask the astronauts.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
