I think having everything above is good. Large tankage and the water maker. Because that water maker may malfunction
. And then you are done.
Sitting here at anchor
on my 50 foot Gulfstar
Sailmaster now loaded to the gills with non-perishable food, a super reliable northern lights generator
to power the refrigerator
Above regular electrical
needs, 350 gallons of water, 200 gallons of diesel
, and this thing just sits here like a rock no matter what comes at it. I’m kind of enjoying it.
Brand new sails
Means I don’t need to motor
anywhere so the diesel
can go to the generator
instead. When needed. And it is needed right now. It’s going to be 35° tonight and I don’t have a diesel heater
. LOL I have electric oil
filled radiator heaters for the moment on this thing. That’s the one place it’s falling a little short. Ha ha
But I was thinking, this thing could really be a great extended quarantine boat. And that’s exactly what I’m using it for. I have enough to go half the summer right now. I have to make one stop this summer for diesel and water and to replenish whatever else. The rest of the time I don’t need to go ashore.
I grabbed my small portable gasoline generator to add in case the diesel is down, instead of the 30 pounds of propane
it already has, I added an extra 30 pounds for a total of 60 pounds propane
, I have 25 gallons of gasoline for the small generator, two Outboards for the tender
that don’t work
. LOL I need to get onto that project
so I don’t need to worry about pump
outs and all of that stuff.
, games, fishing equipment
to pull in fish
while on quarantine.
The knowledge to make nearly anything available to eat from scratch here in the galley
. And here is what my galley storage looks like. There’s a lot more of it, but here are some pictures.
Just made that bread yesterday because I ran out of store bread already. Only had one loaf on hand and ate a lot of it because I was moving all of this stuff into the boat.
I have about 10 pounds of meat to can over the next couple days as well.
