Wondered what other folks list of basics are that they keep on board for the season.    It is nearly time to re-stock and wondered if anyone had anything they had tried that would do for the stock cupboard.

Basic stock cupboard list.    Perhaps we can add to it.

HP and Tom Sauce
Salt & Pepper
Cooking Oil
Foil
Cling film
Kitchen Towels
Matches

and so on ..........

You never know when the pump will pack up so we always keep some sort of meal on board that does not need water to cook/warm it.  So can of soup - Irish Stew - or what rocks your boat.

Likewise some bottled liquids for drinking.

I am always amazed at the theraputic properties of chocolate digestives.

For drinking water we use water carriers, but for emergency water and ballast, we buy a few 5 litre water bottles from Tesco, and keep them in the dark, and they will last the season as the best before date is ages. About £1 each at the last count.

A couple of packs of flavoured rice and a few jars of curry sauce and you have a ready meal in minutes.
Tinned new potatoes, baked beans, generally tinned veg etc.
Vinegar, in case you buy  F&Chips.
Loo rolls, we wrap some individually in a small plastic bag, then they are ready for use, and remain dust free.
A rechargeable or wind up torch.
A cork screw and something to use it on, for some reason we never need to put the cork back in the bottle after we have opened it...
We do find that the screw tops are better.
Usual beers ciders etc.
Semi skimmed milk in 1 litre containers with a lid that does't leak.
Tea, coffee, sugar, sweetners etc, tinned soup, hot chocolate.
Cereals, we like shreddies, and so do the ducks.
Jam, biscuits with a long best before date that are sealed. A tin of tuna, tin of sweet corn, makes a quick filling for sandwiches.
A credit card, so you can eat in the pub.
We always carry enough food for several days, plus the usual fresh food, bread, meat, veg etc

best regards, Richard.
I can't wait to be back on our boat on
the Broads.

Not forgetting waste bin bags the type that tie with a draw string at the top, together with a roll of black sacks.    At least you can stow a bag for a night if sealed up inside the boat at night until hopefully the next day you managed to find a boat rubbish place.   Wouldnt recommend you left it outside the boat as it would attract all manner of animals.  

   Anyone who actually can list where Boat Rubbish places are, it would be helpful and stop folk from just dumping sacks as has been seen in the past. Frown

For us most of the above and Stagg tinned chilli, boil-in-the bag rice, tinned spuds and packet mash for if we can't get to a hostelry. (Oh and Spam - not for us but reserve bait for when the maggots turn.)

You have given me lots of ideas from your replies.  Thank you.     I shall be getting a few bits every time I go shopping from now on.    It is a good idea to have something for a rainy day just in case.    If anyone has any suggestions as to how to keep cerials fresh I would be interested.    Spent out on an expensive plastic container last year and when we went to use the Sugar Puffs they were absolutely solid.

Sticky Sugar Puffs.

An on-going problem once they've been opened.  Our solution is buy them individual packs at Morrisons.  They are then in the original sealed foil packs.  We sometimes get Corn Flakes and Weetabix in the same individual sizes especially if we are using a budget hotel and do not want to spend a fiver on a quick light breakfast.

I used to have to stay in hotels for work and my hotel survival kit was extensive both in food and equipment.

We always have a jar of "coffee mate" so that we can have a coffee, milk or not.

That's at breakfast time though.... in the evening just add Baileys! (or the Irish Meadow stuff from Lathams that cost a fiver - it's fine in a coffee Smile  )
