Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige
Ya, some of the stuff in sailing the farm is a little far fetched. But what it did do for me was set the "independance on 30 feet" ( the sub title) concept into motion. Last time I needed to look at a copy, I had my local library order one and took some notes. The Solar oven works well and the food stuff is pretty accurate. That "solar still" thing I don't think is as efficient as it claims. And I don't plan on using Gold as ballast, but the over all concept took root when I read it as a young sailor and has been the through line in my over all philosophy on Cruising long term and cutting the ambilcal chord to town and all it's expensive ammenities.
