Provisioning a Sailboat?

luckycat | Jun 6, 2014 05:28 AM

This summer, I am going on a 5-week sailing trip from Brooklyn to Maine with 4 other guys. We'll go to the Bay of Fundy near the Canadian border. While this is the 4th time they’ve done the trip, it's my first time along for the whole ride.

Our galley is super basic and we have limited space to store water and fuel. Resupply is tricky & docking is rare, especially north of Boston, where we’ll be for 3 weeks. We have a small propane barbeque and a small butane burner. Water is a major issue.

Any suggestions for foods and preparation that store easily, conserve water and are really satisfying? We have used cous cous for starch a lot in the past. Other ideas?

Any good canned or preserved meat ideas? Something better than Hormel that won’t break the bank is ideal.

I also have a vacuum sealer. What does this make possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
