Drives me crazy not to have a well stocked pantry at home or on the boat. However, these are mostly staples, condiments, beverages, sides, baking supplies, etc. Fresh meats, cold cuts, veg and fruit are rarely in more than a three day supply.

Right now, there is a zero day supply aboard.

This changes in 6 weeks!!

Good point.

Seriously, I shop for groceries two or three times a week. We eat a lot of fresh produce, and I tend to come up with meal ideas on the spur of the moment, and the limited storage aboard Whiskeyjack kind of necessitates it during the summer, and it helps that our local farmer's market is right around the corner from stately Jones manor to get us through the winter.

SWMBO and I brave Costco once every couple of months to stock up on the canned goods, and if we feel the need for a sixpack of pianos, or a blister packed flat of 4376 cans of shaving cream.


I figure, maximum, we keep about 6 days worth of non-perishable/ long-life food onboard... and most of that is stuff that we bought to try, hated, and are stuck with the other box/bag/packet/pouch/envelope of the two that we bought.
It ain't happy food, it is barely survival food.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

We get down to that crap too...and decide to eat out the boat, choke down our mistakes..with a lot of garlic, onion, tobasco, pepper and other "take the hair off your chest" spices...

So we learn....fresh is best, but a can of dinty moore on a a cold, dark wet passage...heaven!

I have a feeling that in our retirement, we'll be farming the sea a lot.

And Old Bay seasoning can make almost anything edible.

Straying from the topic slightly, during my coillege years, I spent a lot of time in Northern Ontario and ski country out west in the winter, and I got a great piece of advice from a truck driver. Keep food in your glovebox. but NOT candy bars, or granola bars or energy bars. Keep a can of dog food. See, if you're just sitting at a RR crossing waiting for a long train, or you're in a traffic jam, you'll snarfle down a hershey bar or a bag of M&Ms, if you know you've got 'em... but you've gotta be in serious trouble before you will gag down a can of Alpo.

We're going to be an outlier on this one because we just stocked up for our Pacific crossing. We have at least 6 months of food on board right now. Heck, we have 7 months worth of Kirkland brand pre-cooked bacon!
