White Vinegar!

On a sailboat, weight matters. If you overweight a sailboat, it not only impacts performance, but could put you, your family, and the boat in peril. This fact is ever-present in our minds as we compile our list of provision. The more versatile a product is, the higher it goes on our list.

White Vinegar is one such products. It has been said that vinegar has 1001 uses, I believe that it has more. It can be used to preserve food, a remedy for jelly fish and bee stings, deodorizer, stain remover, cleaner, beauty aid, in the laundry, a cat detourant, and the list goes on and on. It is believed that Hannibal used vinegar to clear large rocks that blocked his army's route. Now that's what I'm talking about!

On our adventure, we will be carrying vinegar. Do you know of any other such products that we should have on our list?


  1. Duct Tape. :)
    Gorilla Glue
    Wine & Beer. Done. :)

  2. @Joe: Right on about Duct tape! Gorilla Glue is fantastic, but Super Glue gets the nod because it does a great job sealing cuts!

  3. Witch Hazel.... it's great medicine. Better on a burn (sunburn too) than aloe for immediate relief. A small bottle goes a long way.
