I remember President Clinton issuing an executive order making it a crime to "hoard" food and I always wondered how this went down with Mormons, who are required to have a one-year food supply. Can you tell us more about what "feds" you are talking about and what laws apply? When we used to spend up to six months a year in the Bahamas, I supplied our 29-footer with enough food for the entire time. We might luck into a fish or some fresh produce (scarce in the out islands) but relied mostly on own supplies including food, paper products, etc. Bought water or caught rain.

I looked on Amazon and the books are very pricey, probably demand exceeding supply.

Lots of good books on the topic. My fav is Cruising Chef Cookbook by Michael Greenwald. It's actually a good read with cruising stories, but tons of advice on whatto stock and what not to and recipes for cooking at sea.

Just ordered a copy of "Sailing The Farm", for $15, from Amazon. Some of the used ones were way up there, $360, in price and were probably hard cover.
