Re: Hungry at Sea

I'm afraid I have to apologize for some of the offensive posts here. They come from jealous people who are afraid to break free.

I am concerned about the experiences the kids will have while in Hawaii. In Radio Bay you med tie to a wall, they charge you even if you anchor, and you have to get a security escort every time you want to leave or return to your boat. Even after 29 days at sea from Panama, I was out of there in 2 days. There are a whole lot better places to go cruising.

Re: Hungry at Sea

^^^^You may be right, Don. We haven't been there for a very long time. However, if there's a rental car around, they were all already hired when we were there, you can go to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which was a pretty profound experience when I did that!

And the grocery shopping was top notch!

After a couple of weeks on a sailboat at sea, grocery shopping at 7/11 seems top notch!

Ever only provision on an empty stomach!

I tried this for the long passage with the 2 girls. 20 days expected and they were both blathering on about how they were gunna like weight, eat healthy etc. I suddenly thought I was gunna starve.

So I told them the above adage and Provisioning Day we didn't have breakfast. Then I dither ed around for a few hours and it was past lunchtime before we hot to the supermarket and the girls were visibly peckish.
Wow! They hit those shelves and filled those trolleys! (yes they were paying their share!)


So we ate well. ☺️😊😀


Try it.

And, truthfully, they could do 2 weeks at sea without food at all and still be fine, just less butt padding ☺️

Marks New cruising diet! Do to sea without food 😊😊😊😊 and lose the lard ass.

😅
after 2 trips you may even be fit enough to go cycling with Dockhead
