Re: Provisioning for Gunkholing and Voyaging on Small Light Displacement Sailboats
I have doubled the insulation in my ice box and can go five days without needing ice. We also keep canned chunky soups,potatoes, and veggies. I sometimes get luck and catch a fish or 2. We are on the Chesapeake so there are several places to restock and get ice. I always have to be back at work before the ice is gone. Most of the top of the line coolers are good for 5 days
5 days is fantastic.
We thought about getting one of those 12 volt coolers a couple years back. Can't remember why we decided against it.
