I addition, 10 pounds of dry ice produces about 2520 Liters of gaseous CO2 at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. I will not be using CO2 on my boat.

That is a grand total of 2.520 cubic meters or about 89 cubic feet. Produced over many hours as the dry ice does its phase change from solid to gas. Most boats are ventilated sufficiently that there would be no buildup of gas. Heck it takes at least 5 hours for the one pound I get for the trip to the boat to phase change.

Re: Jugs of ice in the freezer?

How about having an "ice" bag shipped to you free? I got mine with my Blue Apron orders--along with a few delicious and free meals. I'm now a satisfied customer (no other connection). They ship the meals to you with a freezer bag enclosed. Do it for the food but keep the "ice" packs. Their ingredients are better than almost any restaurant meals. Free !

TANSTAAFL. They're only "free" in that you don't pay for them as separate items, just like the shipping. Do you honestly believe that the cost of them isn't factored into their product pricing?

I not only believe it, I know it.


The first few meals are "truly free" because they are part of a free trial. They offer a free trial to prove their value and Induce you to then buy further meals.

Let me know if you can't find the "free trial" on the blue apron website under New Chefs.

Every US-based cruiser should try a few meals of free provisions under this offer.
