A quick side track, I'd be curious to know how trash is handled especially for multiple days out. I cannot stand litter and have heard some say they break glass bottles and toss them overboard, but that sparkling surface is not the lid on a trash can.

You get used to having everything you need already on your own boat. It's a different mindset when your walking onto boats you're delivering or chartering. You've got to have check lists or you'll be walking up to "crap, I forgot coffee" the first morning..

For travel we cook at home and pack it in the freezer.
On board only pasta, rice or potatoes are cooked.

For meat storage we freeze everything in portions in a vacuum sealer because that greatly reduces precious freezer space.


This is what we doing too.

Thanks for that! When I first read, I thought 1 gallon of water per person per day was excessive... However, I could have used that rationing this weekend. Ran out of water by end of second morning. All other provisions held though.

Good question.... for the long weekend this weekend, we ran into the same problem. As people headed to shore they offered to make a "trash run". Not sure what I would do in a remote area. The trash would stack up quickly.

A trash compactor is a great addition to a cruising boat. Fortunately, on Moonstruck we have a large lazarette capable of holding several of the large black trash bags. Wine bottles are almost all the glass we will have as waste. For soft drinks we use Crystalite with insulated tumblers. Just the envelope is thrown in the trash. Cans are mashed.

We have a trash compactor and it really is handy. If we are anchored on the move, anything organic goes overboard, everything else in the compactor. When we load up, we do try to eliminate as much packaging and unneeded trash before we leave. We can generally get about 7-10 days worth in one compactor bag.

Just wondering, what is your water capacity. You won't get far on that type of usage/storage.

We usually provision for about a month.
Beer and wine just stack as much as the lazzerette will hold. Good horizontal wine bottle cartons are best as they don't rattle very much, haven't had a broken bottle yet.
Frozen goods are all vacuum packed. Veges are stored in green vege bags in the frig. Spuds , onions, pumpkin all stored in a well ventilated container under the sink.
We never prepare food to take away as we like to eat fresh.
Frig and freezer capacity and being able to hold temps 24/7 is what it is all about

On a boys trip it is beer,Beer, wine, beer,wine, 20kg bag of rice, 2 large bottles of soy sauce, large bag of wasabi powder and get the trolling lines over as soon as you leave port. Just exaggerating a bit.

Cheers
Benn

Inshore having an aluminum dink in davits is a fine place to stow trash.

Even with a number of big bags the weight is minor , and enough space can be created to row ashore for a dumpster.

Offshore sinking trash by being sure cans are punctured at both ends , and fikking glass with water helps leave a clean wake.

Just a quick reminder:

In lakes, rivers, bays, sounds and up to 3 miles offshore it is illegal to dump:
-All garbage
From 3 to 12 nautical miles offshore it is illegal to dump:
-Plastic
-Dunnage, lining and packing materials that floats
-All other trash if not ground to less that 1"
From 12 to 25 nautical miles offshore it is illegal to dump:
-Plastic
-Dunnage, lining and packing materials that float
Outside 25 nautical miles offshore it is illegal to dump:
-Plastic

This is for drinking water only. And coffee water. We have a 120 gallon water tank but prefer not to drink water out of it. Use it for showers, sink, and toilets.

Excel spreadsheet for food? Nope, not a chance.

We stay at marinas in town usually every third or fourth day and eat at restaurants. We bring the leftovers back to the boat and microwave them the next day.

Other than that, we buy stacks of non-refrigerated microwave meals and pair them with canned vegetables. We don't have a lot of refrigerator or freezer space.

Why don't you drink the water from your water tanks? It would make things a lot simpler.

Talk to HopCar. He can fix you up with a water filter/softening system that will give you good water. They really work---plus great for washing the boat and windows.

Water tank capacity 277 gals incl 2 extra tanks added by a PO, one aft,one fwd. We don`t drink it, probably could, we take tap water in containers for drinking, coffee, etc. A friend fitted a filter system for his tank water and is happy with it.

I have 2 x 125 gal (500 lt) stainless steel water tanks on Tidahapah . They used to be 1000 lts each until I fitted the water maker and then I cut them down so that I could store more wine and beer.
All water used is from these tanks. I will not allow plastic bottles of water on board. The galley sink tap has a carbon filter for drinking water when we have town water on board. The rest of the time all the water is made on board and perfect for all occasions.
The bottled water farce is the greatest con ever and the whole world fell for it.

Cheers
Benn

Folks, I may not be the "sharpest tool in the shed" as I used to pay $4-6 per 10 lb bag of ice to dump into the cooler every other day to keep a case of beer cold. Then, when it occurred to me that I only needed 1 -3 cans at a time (depending on guests), I started keeping 6 cans in the refrigerator (against the cold plate) and replacing it as necessary, while keeping that same 10 lb bag of drink ice in a corner of the refrigerator, where it lasts for nearly a week. A side from the new-found wealth, the greatest benefit is the freedom from having to track down ice every other day. George

cool ones

Which begs the question, "If you have guests on board can you cool them as fast as you drink them"

And the answer is "If the guests are getting free beer they get the warm ones"

Cold mugs in the box do a reasonable chilling job , for beer or (ugh) even soft drinks.
