Calling all live aboards and cruisers of long distance and even short distances -
What canned foods do you like ?
Starting Monday, I'm beginning my can night.
What are your favorite canned foods and brands ?
What would 4 essential items be ?
What about dry goods and how do you keep them dry on a boat ?

When I'm not looking at boats for sale, or reading about boat design, I'm planning for a month or more of food stores aboard. I've been spoiled on land with easy access to healthy fresh & seasonal foods, and really don't eat canned foods. But I know I will need to have a large store of canned goods. After reading an online article from a famous cruising couple (forgive me, I can't remember their names right now - from Cruising World I think), who started can night at their land home before leaving, it seems a wise and prudent idea.
Now, I know some cruisers, who will remain unnamed, could care less about variety. That's ok. I'm easy going, I can go eating the same d*** thing day after day but I know I'll be happier with variety.

So, starting Monday, I'm beginning my can night.
How about you ? Please share

if you have ever made a passage offshore you will know that dried beans and other things requiring long cooking times are not practical in the least----the most practical things to keep are pre-prepared finger foods, pb and jelly....etc---try to make and eat foods requiring cooking while on a passage--even with an auto pilot, there is no way to leave helm and make a secure galley and make a 6 hour and tinned meats and such are the best things --cheeses, anything requiring no cook time for the passages....the dried things and needsalot to cook stuff --gooood for whenya get to your destination----donot forget--even those of us with goood hearts will experience swelling of extremities with sunburn and salty foods.......

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
