Feed yourself for $1/Day in the Bahamas

While we were cruising the Bahamas we fed ourselves for pretty darn cheap.


However, we bypassed the usual frivolities that "vacation cruisers" afford themselves (like potato chips, nutella, and other processed goodies).

How did we do this?
We
1. Spearfished (no triggers or scuba gear!)
2. Fished
3. Conched
4. Stocked up on some of the cheaper long-lasting stuff like rice in Florida
5. Make friends and eat with friends to experience the local cuisine instead of just going to a restaurant (get to try the local cuisine and you make new friends... double winner!)

My question to you, how do YOU eat for cheap in the Bahamas??
What tips do you have for us and everyone else out there planning cruises in the Bahamas?

GAAAHHH! Another blatant Navionics advertisement.

Really, I suggest everyone turn AGAINST Navionics specifically because of these low-ret advertising methods. Do you really need spam in your cruisers forum browsing?

And like ALL the other spam this low-life puts out, he won't even return to this thread to defend himself. Go ahead and check all of his other posts. He posts advertisements like this and never returns. Even when people take his posts for real and ask specific questions of him.

I guess if you need to survive on $1/day, you need to pimp as much advertising dollars as possible.

Re: Feed yourself for $1/Day in the Bahamas

BTW, we are currently in the Bahamas feeding ourselves just fine (here is our catch from the other day). We are also in a more remote area than Hoghunter ever visited according to his chart. His Navionics charts suck big time here, so that explains this.

However, to call someone a "vacation cruiser" just because they prefer to have a bit of peanut butter or nuts or chips on board is simply ignorant. Also to infer that if one is spending more than $1/day just because they like to have a bit of jam on their bread, that they are not "real" cruisers is also ignorant.

Bring it on Hoghunter. Do you really want to compare your "real cruising" experience sliding over to the Bahamas for the first time from Florida for a few months to many of the other "vacation cruisers" on this forum?

If not, then please spare us the Navionics spam and the denigrating attitude.

Why Navionics thinks you are helping their business is beyond me.

Re: Feed yourself for $1/Day in the Bahamas

I agree. It's getting blatant. I've just reported it to the mods as spam.

Somehow the chart has gone, so not much point to the thread.
Now closed for the holidays

I'm against reporting things to the mods unless it is truly dangerous.

I like to think peer pressure can stop things like this. If you want to report Hoghunter, report him to Navionics as harming their business. That's what I did.
