Food (see suggestions below)
Our galley includes a propane stove, microwave and convection ovens, and an infra-red grill. The captain will be happy to cook (weather permitting) breakfast and dinner for you, whatever you bring. There is nothing like enjoying freshly cought and prepared fish right on the water!
For breakfast, most people bring eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, cereal, bagels etc.
For lunch, sandwiches are good, chips, cookies, fruit, vegetables or other snacks. Don't forget the condiments, ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc.
Most groups like to eat fresh fish for dinner at least one of the nights, so if thats the case, don't forget the oil and the breading. For sides, dry or pre-packaged meals such as yellow rice, Rica-a-Roni, Lipton noodles, or beans all work well. We can also grill steaks, hot dogs or hamburgers. You may bring salad, dressing, or fruit if you would like. Milk and butter are also a good idea.
Pre made or frozen meals such as lasagnia, fried or roasted chicken, roast pork, pizza, are very easy to heat up, fast, and work very well, especially if the windy weather prevents us from getting too elaborate on the stove.
