A lump of bacon , subject to the overall temperature, hung in a well ventilated space will last a surprisingly long time as will of course things like chorizo, salami and proscuitto.

Yeah, high temps could 'spoil" my idea. Not at all sure about canned meats, happy to go with fresh fish, I'd also probably go veggo other than that.

Hey, I'm just trying to wean you off pizza ....

Re: provisioning for a 400 mile passage..

Avoid soft fruit - i.e. peaches, they spoil really fast. Apples, oranges last. I wrap them in paper towels and put them in hammocks.

Zatarain makes some great mixes; my favourite is jambalaya. Add some sausage or chicken (even canned), great one pot dish.

Couscous is also great with a stew, curry, whatever.

We eat everything out of bowls.

Re: provisioning for a 400 mile passage..

no zatarains in mexico... pizza we have not had for over a year--is PIZZA TIME!!!!!!!!!!
i wont buy papayas--peaches are green when picked and last 2 days, papayas fall on heads, so are free, and cocos are too hard to open, mangos are out of season, and guayabas are still found, but are too soft----bananas are plentiful, but spidey lives there.......

Zee-

You catch fish that reliably? You say "daily"... I wish I were that good at fishing.

Re: provisioning for a 400 mile passage..

i only catch fish reliably when i have enough cans of tuna to offset the damages when i do not catch --- when i am out more than 20 miles i catch fish.
also rationale behind 3 xl pizzas..one with 'chovies......you see--if you have plenty to eat and fish as well, usually is caught a fishie.

Ha, ok I see now.

Are you taking the Formosa or the Ericson on this trip? How many crew (besides boatkat)?

I just looked at the sketches and stats for the Ericson for the first time. I'm in lurrrrve... what a sleek boat.
