One method ( not exact) to test if an egg is spoiled before cracking is to put it in water and seeif it floats. If it does. toss it.
A very light coating of a vegetable cooking oil does it perfectly and the eggs can be hung in a basket in the cabin. They will last about two to three months like that, and should not be going bad even then, they just get a little stale.

Re: provisioning for a 400 mile passage..

When I go out on a boat I follow the "remember the Minnow" plan, a short trip may turn into a very much longer one LOL. I have never had to tap into the reserves due to an emergency, but I have had shorter trips turn into much longer because I did not want to return....

The next time I leave I am sort of planning just to stay indefinitely, or at least as long as the money lasts....
