It depends, lately I've been working day for day, which is 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. You can work it out with the guy who works opposite you to work longer hitches. My budy does 45 day's on 45 off which is what I'm looking to do.

Capt A, Good that you sterilize the beer top with lemon. Who knows what crap is on the bottom under the boat.

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

Well, down here in the back country or the Yucatan coast the water is as clear as you can imagine. I do an awful lot of diving and snorkeling and constanly have it in my mouth. I bath mostly in the sea when I'm cruising and rinse with fresh water. And beer when I'm out there is a delicacy anyway's, I drink expensive rum from the bottle.

Capt.aaron... WOW!

Just read through this thread! Huge respect!

I am a relative newbie to the forums but I feel that I am learning SO much and it is because of members like you!

Do you think there is a market for a cruiser's cook book?

Honestly, most of the stuff I do, I found in a cruising cook book or a book like sailing the farm. Some of the recipies I make are just my renditions of all ready existing dishes. But maybe a consolidated book is an idea worth thinking about. Thank's for the vote of confidence. There are some great cruising cook books out there. I like the ones written in the 70's. Kind of minimilist, pre gadget stuff.

I wasn't particularly impressed with Sailing the Farm. Incorrect information on some things I did know about cast the rest that I didn't know about into doubt.

If you are interested in the book it is available for free online http://cruisenews.net/sailfarm.pdf

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.
