Have over 7 Days Food Aboard?

How many of you sailors stock your boat with food? How many have more than seven days food aboard?

I could last for a month with what I have right now, and I don't start active cruising again for a couple of months, when I'll have even more.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Well, I'm looking for fellow terrorists here. I know that we all fit the profile.

Seriously, it's nice to keep her stocked so that you can have a spontaneous get away some times.

Couple to three weeks worth of leftovers from the last cruise. Fuel tanks are full for winter, fill the water tanks, grab some rum and I am good to go. Dan S/V Marian Claire

Uh, what do you know that we don't know? What's on the horizon? Zombies? Communists? Another "Twilight" movie?

I have a some freeze dried meals packaged in #10 cans at home. It would last me and my wife over a year. We also have flour,rice and baking mixes also packaged in #10 cans. I could fit about three months worth on the boat. Water would be a bigger problem than food.

Full time liveaboard and I keep about two weeks worth of staples at all times.

After a week it would be rice and beans though.

Actually, none of the above. It's a test. I'm gathering information for DHS. According to the feds, you may be a terrorist if you store more than seven days food.

I always think I might have company so I keep a lot of stores & stock a full bar ! The reality is; no one shows up, I single hand & I'm good for a month or two! It's all about sailing, so who give a dam!..Dale
