Well, even that broken boat fridge would be well insulated. Pick up some of those plastic basins they sell at the dollar store. You know, those kind that will fit in your broken fridge. Then fill them half with ice and half with all the prime rib
you can buy at some local wal-mart. I would also get some dehydrated jerky while your there so you could either munch on that or just boil it in a stew, You may want to look at the price
of a turkey
breast and cranberry sauce as Thanksgiving is coming. Some potatos would be nice as well. I like mine baked.
Your stove and oven
works, right? Well, time to bust out all the flour and start making some bagels, bread, cakes, cinnamon rolls and pies with the canned fruit. If you picked up some canned pumpkin and condensed milk, you could have pumpkin pie, one of my favourites. Dont forget to add some vegetables; you will need natural vitamins to stay healthy. Also using that stove and oven
will warm up the cabin
nice and toasty.
I remember on a different thread here an another sailor had a folding bike aboard his boat, Every two weeks he would row his dingy to shore along with his bike and hand dolly and then cycle with the dolly tied to the frame. With cord and bungies he could bring back two weeks worth of food aboard to live at anchor. Coz you're from NY a local taxi might be more suitable.
If you have a fishing license
you could vary your meals
with some fish
you can catch. I don't know the area your anchored at, but the locals could tell you where to go and what is the best to bait for.
When I was a young scout growing up in the SW, we learned Rocky Mtn Wilderness survival skills that included building a fire from scratch. We had plenty of ice from all the snow on the ground so fresh water
wasn't a problem. We would make and bait snare traps to catch bunnies for dinner. Good eating; tasted like chicken. Sometimes you cannot always hike or sail to your favourite restaurant. You need to be ready to execute plan B or sometimes plan C.
