Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

I've used the bug sprayer shower on previous boats but never found the pressure particularly acceptable. On our old girl with no pressure or hot water we went one step further and got hold of one of those el cheapo 12v showers. In warm weather we'd heat water with a solar bag, in cold a kettle. Into head sink or bucket, add cold to taste then throw in the 12v pump. Worked splendidly and didn't seem to use much more water than the bug sprayer.

(My bug sprayer was the plastic type. Whether or not the stainless versions work better I cannot say)

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

Having hippy girlfriends when I was in my early 20's, I aquired a taste for boxed tofu, spiralina, nutritional yeast ( which is a good sub for parm. cheese.) boxed soy milk on my cereal. with a little creativity, you can eat gormet from dryed and canned foods, olive oil, and a saute' pan. pickled and cured things. I stay out there longer and live healthier on that diet. I get fat and lazy in town. Bragg's soy sauce and apple cider vinnager, baby carrots last for ever, Dip's made with tofu and herbs and stuff. I can go on and on and on. When you find the right lagoon to anchor in and have six months worth of supplies, it becomes your daily time passer thinking up combo's and recipe's. spear fishing looking for lobster and conch. I did have a 12 volt blender that I made smoothy's with boxed orange juice and spirilina, or chocolate soy milk and banana's. I'd bring a green stock of apple banan's out there and pick off it for the second week. Textuerd veggie protien marinated in A-1 sauce and served on mash potato's. canned and jarred asparugus, quick seared and served on canned chicken breast saute'd with capers, canned butter and white wine.maybe some penne pasta with that.............................................. ..

Not only that, but you don't need 6 digit's worth of crap to get out there and do it. The same boat I have now, is the same boat My Grandfather took me to the Bahama's in in 1978 and the same boat we gunkholed around the key's in all through the 80's, and I loved it as a kid. My entertainment was a hawaiin sling and a walkman. My comfort was a cushion for my but and a warm meal. At the end of the day, if you are dry, sitting on something soft and eating a nice meal and maybe a cocktail and your music playing in the back ground, what else do you need? That's what you'd be doing on my boat and it's what I'm doing on the fancy gadget boats.

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

It's an aquired taste, like wheat grass. I like wheat grass, they say the less toxic you are the sweeter it tastes, It taste's sweet to me.( and I must to be a little toxic) Spiralina I even like sprinkled on my mac and cheese. But blended with orange juice and honey is a good start.

Re: longer than stuff lasts in a frige

Excellent. I'll try orange juice. Going to pick up lots of the 'hippy' stuff in this thread. I totally want to get into the raw food scene.
