2 week cruise, 14 quarts of spirits (vodka or white rum), 7 24's beer or 7 bottles wine. Oops I don't drink anymore. Food whats that. Enough calories in the liquid refreshments. Maybe some muffins for roughage.

I'd never have heard this story if you hadn't told me - at least here is a place where folks can tell the sailing stories. And hey, I'm gonna bookmark this thread, so that when we do come to provision; I can justify the extra weight of a few dozen bottles of rum!
