What about this kind of storage???? They both have at least a week stored up.

Thanks for the visual. Now I won't be able to have sex with the wife for at least a week.

Capt Tom. Thank you!

Tried doing the download without success. Thought paperback would be nice to have on board and was surprised to find it so easy at a reasonable price.

Re: Have over 7 Days Food Aboard?

Due to hurricane Irene I had a crop failure in my beans and blue corn. Yet another example of how civilization is great, you can order something from an area without a crop failure.

Happy to report that I just got my shipment of 50 lbs. of organically grown dried beans, and am cooking up a huge pot of beans and blue corn right now (still have lots of corn from the previous year).

I read about a long passage where they purchased "miracle storage foods" and discovered only out on the ocean that they couldn't eat the stuff. Really helps to buy what you eat, and eat what you buy.

Did you try the link I posted? I just tried it again, worked instantly and very very fast. Has worked everytime. OK to have it in print and digital.

Too true re the Miracle Foods. Has amazed me in the past to see boats with lots of food stuffs on board that to my mind are inedible and to then find that the crew have never actually tested the stuff. While we keep various tinned stuff for the times when we are stuck at anchor and cannot (easily) get to shore I fail to see why anyone needs vast quantities of supplies unless you expect to be away from civilisation for a serious period of time. I think I'm repeating myself here but there is no good reason why most cruisers cannot eat fresh.

Re: Have over 7 Days Food Aboard?

So we stocked up on bags of fresh potatoes in Los Palmas for crossing to Trinidad.Most went real bad from the inside before landfall.Even tho the water was green with algae we were ok because of pasta spaghetti and macaroni supplemented with pasta and twice toasted bread and pasta. Did you know that when life rafts are repacked, the emergency food blocks and water packs are turfed?. With good timing , free for the asking.
