You can get self heating packs... Literally just add water (which is in the sachet) , close the bag..and in five mins hot hot food.. No need for gas or flames etc. Camping shops should have them. If you're not planning on eating on the boat, but may have to they'll give you hot food with no hassle

Yup, light weight too.

These are my favourite: Fuizion Freeze Dried Food they're not cheap but after a long day walking (or in this case ribbing!) they are really really tasty proper meals. Their breakfast porridge is nice too Obviously you need access to hot water though.

RIB Food???

I have my own dehydrator, I dry out my own fruits to pop in a ziplock bag for long journeys or fishing trips. Bananas turn mega sweet, I also do venison jerky, unfortunately the jerky doesn't last long as I've got it eaten in jig time.

Its great for snacking on and doesn't add bulk saving you having to beech the boat and squat behind a bush.

Looking at our answers above, it looks like we've answered two questions:

A. What do you eat on a normal day's cruise?
B. What emergency rations do you carry on a long cruise?

I answered A which proves I don't read stuff as carefully as Poly. A good supply of readily accessed A rations will stave of the time when you may need to dig into the B rations. When you DO need to hit the B rations, you'll want them the way Nos likes his women easy, hot and ample. I'm thinking for when you end up in some refuge like Mike Thornton did on the RI. The self heating MREs HAVE to be a good idea but I know that a lot of them are a bit light on calories. As you have the jetboil now anyway, consider packing a few "instant pasta meals" like Knorr Pastaria Pasta Carbonara 170G - Groceries - Tesco Groceries. They're no delicacy but when you're cold and hungry they'll taste just fine. Cooked in a couple of minutes by adding to boiling water, high in calories, cheap and pack small.

Take lots of fresh water - for cooking of course but really for drinking - you sweat a lot off on a long day at sea. I always hide a large Lucozade somewhere about my person for emergencies - good for seasickness or just a quick lift. The concealed bottle assures me a good welcome in Port too

Sixy hasn't seen your last...you may want to start running

Given that yu've got a jetboil, Go Outdoors sell meals you can heat up in them-basically exactly the same as the self heating ones, but minus the flameless heater. THey ARE short on calories though. Don't be tempted by the pouched food Tesco sells-the bags dont allow for decent heat transmission.
I carry 2 or3 Hotcans (use google) including a pudding for the sugar hit, and a couple of heatermeals (google again) though I've recently replaced one of the heater meals with a self heating 24 hour ration pack as it gives you coffee etc. Also glucose tablets.

Do't forget shedloads of water too.
