Kit; Package of gauze and some duct tape!

I guess that could work for a bad case of diarrhea? Just plug with gauze and tape shut.

Place the leg quarters on top of the rice and use broiler to brown the chicken on top of the rice, heating the rice through, and steaming the spices into the chicken.
Two cups of rice, some water, and meat of choice. Do it right, and you eat well.
Side issue. ALL MICROWAVES SHOULD HAVE A BROILER BUILT IN LIKE MY LATEST ONE!
2 cups of rice, meat of choice stripped or cubed. Left over roast works very well. Cook rice in the microwave as already described. Allow to cool. Put a chopped onion, a cup of broccoli florets, and half a cup of frozen fresh peas, in a skillet with a couple of spoons of a clean tasting olive oil and about the same of sesame oil. The Sesame oil is the "Wok" taste in fried rice. Cook until florets are just past crunchy, the peas are heated, and the onions are soft. Scrape the rice off with a spoon slowly over the mix to avoid any clumping in the cold rice as you add it. Stir non-stop until finished. When it starts to stick, dose the whole pan with a good shot of soy sauce. Stir in well, kill the heat, and set out sprouts for those that want them.
Once you get this one down, it can be made as I describe, or in many different combination's. Those of you already out there will know the readily available ingredients. You might not want to share it with too many people though! You will have boats around you trying to order fried rice!
If you price the ingredients in those two dishes, prepared in plenty for two now and later snacks/leftovers, food need not be that much of an expense.
This thread got me to start experimenting with cheap dishes for two on a boat!
So... your either in a Marina or running a generator to 'Nuke' your food..
Try this for a quick tasty stove top meal for two..
2 Chicken Breasts.. sliced thin..
2 Medium Onions cut into about 8 wedges each..
3 Tablespoons Honey
Juice of half a Lemon
!/2 teaspoon Tumeric
Dried or fresh Mint
Olive Oil
1/4 cup slivered Almonds(optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste.

Fry the chicken till lightly browned, remove and throw onions into the pan with a splash more oil if needed... fry gently till softened and golden.
Add the tumeric stir then add Honey, Mint and Lemon Juice.. cook till well blended then toss in almonds and a coupla minutes later throw in the Chicken... 5 minutes more on low heat stirring ocassionally to prevent sticking and its ready to serve...
Cook time 20minutes max. Serve with Pasta, Rice Potatoes or a nice Crusty Bread.

When you get to Australia

Take 1 sulphur crest cockatoo, black cockatoo can be used if no race sensitive types around, or gala if only cooking for 1.
Pluck etc and place in large saucepan. Half fill with water then add red wine, mushrooms, onion, green or red peppers, oregano, a touch of curry powder, then add a couple of stones to bring the liquid close the top of the saucepan.
Bring to the boil, then let simmer for a couple of hours until liquid is back to about a third.
Now, remove the cockatoo, and eat the rocks....

I recently found out that there are some places that will can your food for you in little tins! You provide the food, prepare it, and then they can it. I'm going to be checking into this. It's a great idea for those without refrigeration.
I recommend you get a copy of "Cruising Guide to the Chesapeake"

You did purchase a boat with a draft of 3 ft didn't you? If so, you have thousands of anchorages available.. including some near public transport in DC...

Given you are interested in canning.. get a recipe book devoted to that, Ball jars, lids, and rings, and a pressure canner. Do it yourself..

Make your own pasta, bread, crackers, too...

Reduce your meat consumption max out at 3 kg / month.. fill in with lentils, garbanzos, beans... get a vegetarian cookbook and an arabic cook book, too.

Job Security..

poor suckers...

They often start their comments with... As a professional...

Incidentally, I'm not anti professionals, I wouldn't want an amateur taking out my appendics, or educating my kids, or designing my boat for that matter...
It's just an observation that people who are so smart in one area often let it rob them of their ability to just be real survivors...

The point being made regarding job security by myself is this...

There is no such thing!!!

Planning on cruising when you are on pension.. or planning on cruising when you have saved enough for the floating condo...

MAY...

Kill your cruising dream for ever...

On Board Medical Care...

Occasionally, I see posts regarding onboard medical first aid kits...

What I never see, however, are inventories from such kits...

I hear rubbish regarding one poster flaming another who sought medical advice from hsi MD regarding his kit

THIS IS RUBBISH !!

As we age, we are prone to develop chronic conditions which require medication. I have high blood pressure, and high chlosterol, for example.

Twenty years ago, I didn't. Back then I didn't stock BP meds or Statins for Cholesterol,either..

If you have no other source available, I recommend the book "Where There Is No Doctor", as a place to begin.

I bought a premium offshore kit, that included dental tools, and equipment for setting fractures and the like...

In the event, I mostly used analgesics, ointments, and antibiotics.

I mostly needed plasters, surgical tape, roll bandages, and gauze squares..

I never used the dental instruments, and never had to set a fracture.

I never used the BP cuff, though my wife did when she practiced medicine in Africa.

I found the meds much cheaper in Ecuador and China than anywhere else.

I think someone who just put a kit together, would do the thread a service by posting the inventory, together with a small essay on what was chosen and why,

I think the flamers should have the good grace to listen attentively to whom ever posts tne inventory, and constructive suggestions to make the kit more useful, and appropriate could result in something of use to everyone.

A recipe for a Pot Luck...

One of the ways to reduce expenses, while having fun, is to entertain aboard...

We do that often....

We prefer to buy our beer at Kmart for $0.60 / can rather at the pub for $3 each....

If you entertain... you need a dish to serve many... for little...

Traveling Jew is one such....

Traveling Jew::::

200 grams of boneless chuck diced into 1 cm cubes
1 C of dried Garbanzos
1/4 C vegetable or olive oil
1 egg plant, diced into 1 cm cubes
1 large onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 t dried thyme
1T dried basil
1t salt
1t black pepper
1.5 C bulghur
4.5 C water or beef stock
4 boulion cubes or beef base if using water
1 T lemon juice
2 T sugar

Put the garbanzos into a pan with water and boil for 10 mins., set aside for 3 hours
Brown the meat, add the onion and garlic and saute til the ionion goes clear.
Remove the meat mixture from the pan, add more oil and saute the egg plant til it goes opaque.

Put the meat mixture and the eggplant into a soup pot.
add the rest of thie ingredients and simmer for 40 minutes

serve with a salad and yoghurt.

A Cheoy Lee 31 was bought by a neighbor from a seller on St. John for $4000. the boat needs some work...

Ditto for
Pearson Vanguards...

If you will do the work yourself... it is amazing what you can accompliish for very little..
