Re: Have over 7 Days Food Aboard?

For canning, maybe start small. 3 or 4 1/2 pints of veg or fruit in a lidded pot of boiling water for 60 min min. Any jam jars with a good seal will do.Fish and meat takes some experience. A lot of moisture for inside. Cockpit or the the crab cooker on the taff rail next to the barbecue. Calm day ..

Re: Have over 7 Days Food Aboard?

I'm running a bit low now but typically have about 3 months of food and booze. I get the good fresh stuff every few days to add to the long term stores I carry.

You towing one of these behind your boat????



If you really want an endless supply of booz, check out the Cooper's Home Brew Kit. It's much more minimal on the gear than most home brew kits. It's also DEAD easy to do (just boil one regular kettle of water) and even the bottles you put the product into are reusable plastic (unbreakable). I have this setup (with some modifications) on my boat and I can brew up 5gal of beer every 7-10 days. All the ingredients for 15gal of beer fit into the size of a breadbox. The beer itself is passable to good (and I'm a beer snob)without modifying the ingredients from kit form.

Video of how easy the Cooper's beer kit system is:

You're welcome. Almost looks like it's a brewing system made for boats doesn't it?

Cheers!

Re: Have over 7 Days Food Aboard?

Not much more effort to make 20 l of wine(once you've squeezed the juice out in an old pillow case.I hang it from a halyard into the primary on the dock) I usually pick my own black berries (fabulous) Oregon grapes or elder berries but this year was my first crop of home grown grapes . Not to write home about but a pleasant glass just the same. Even if it turns out not so good (like the rice concoction a few years ago) I've got a coil of SS tubing in a 20 l pail of cold water which makes part of it all good again.

Darn. I clicked the like button now I'm going to be listed with the feds (even though I am undoubtedly listed already.) Now I will probably have to move out of the country soon before things get too tyrannical. Fortunately I wanted to do that already.

Whether or not you are collecting information on purpose, in either case the feds are reading what people are posting here.

I'm more serious about this than you probably realize.

Is this sarcastic?

Re: Have over 7 Days Food Aboard?

As an alternative to canning fish (which I prefer) you can salt, dry or smoke .Best done on shore in a private cove.Hot alder smoke (coast native style) leaves a durable slab of salmon that stores dry like cord wood. Cool smoke is great flavour ,sugar optional, but product needs canning or freezing if you can keep from eating right way. Clams and oysters are good too. Dryfish( Inuit style) is OK but it's usually too damp on the coast for any success .I salt dried Tuna in the tropics But if I were to do it again I'd fire up the Primus and get an edible product.( no intended insult to Newfies)

Wink Eating the cats

We are full-time cruisers, so we stock up on HEAVY stuff when we have transportation (rent a car, hitch a ride), then we buy LIGHT stuff when we have to hoof it. We might not be able to eat WELL for more than seven days, but there will be a lot of HEAVY stuff on the boat to compensate (beer, booze, canned food, dry beans and rice). And we have months of dry/canned food for our three cats - and possibly we could eat the cats, after all other possibilities have been exhausted.

Joy! Jane
