Yes, watch videos of TSA at work and you'll learn it right quick! (Gord, can I put an emoticon here? Like )

Do the math. 700 cans will last you 70 days at 10 per day. Simple. If I were you I would acquire a taste for rum. It is dirt cheap in the Bahamas; especially by the case, and take less room to store.

Education in Cuba

Cuba has one of the highest literacy rates in the world, among other admirable stats.

You might be a little behind the times.

countrybimm,
How long did 700 cans last?
I was thinking of taking 500 or so.....[/QUOTE]

i dont remember exactly it worked out to over two and a half months i think..there were two of us on board, both in midtwenties...we started rationing pretty heavily and switched to rum once we got low...
if your a beer drinker fill every extra space on the boat up, the savings are worth it.plus, on the smaller islands you can trade beer for ice and things and save even more money.....hogs/chub?(cant remember) key they wanted 12bucks for a big bag of ice, we gave them 6 beer at 50cents a can...
