Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Dear Scoobert, ICW prices are no joke-they are serious 'business'. You -my friend- are a 'snowbird bringing cash' we here in Florida -need it -want it and will get it (one way or another)! We are also eagerly awaiting Dec 15 when we all raise prices even more and at this point in time we will be joined by all the Caribbean places in raising prices to pluck the silly snowbirds who have flocked down --and stop moaning about 'quality' your lucky we have anything available ;;;;your in a boat your supposed to have lotsa cash

Yes, but no refrigeration when sailing.
Our choices are limited by that.
Thou we did anchor last night.
I just wish there was a capital grille every 10 miles

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

With no refrigeration, does your boat have an ice box? You can usually pick up ice at almost any marina, even town docks.

On our old boat we bought one of those 12 volt refrigerator coolers....I don't recall it being much over $200.00 ....it plugs into a 12volt outlet and keeps food quite cold. Now we use it in the back of the SUV for road trips. It is big enough to keep several days worth of food cold.

No ice box. We have a broken boat fridge, and a 120 volt that runs constantly.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Wait til you get to Florida and have to re-register your boat. You do know about that, don't you?

Brand name? Several years ago when I road raced I bought a Coleman, no compressor used a Peltier plate I think it's called? Anyway it's basically junk, I would love an actual working portable 12V icebox.

Scoobert:

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.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Somehow I'm reminded here of one of my favorite lines from "Riddle of the Sands." Davies, a true sea dog who would rather anchor out for weeks at a time, says when they're forced to go into a town, and they run into trouble:

"I wish to Heaven we had never come in here,' he said, in a hard voice; 'it comes of landing ever.'

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

The oven is broken it does not shut off...
We got a toaster oven for the time we are docked.
And a bread maker

We will fish, just not right now. We have to read up on the prep.

Scoobert, I must say, you were originally planning to head offshore (even if for just a couple of days) in a boat with no means of heating food except a toaster oven? Not even a good camping stove? Trangia? Seriously? What will your wife do when you head back to work for three weeks?

Glad to hear that the lack of gourmet food is the only problem. You didn't expect to find a Fairway or Dean & Deluca at every dock, did ya'? Sounds like you guys are having fun!
