PROVISIONING TIPS FROM THE PROSCaptains Chris & Alyse Caldwell share much more than your typical shopping list. These experienced cruisers will help you learn what you should bring along to prepare for your cruise away from home port. Consider everything from spare parts and tools to first aid and groceries and how to replenish these supplies while cruising. Then where do you store these items? We will explore what works in the real world of boating and what doesn’t. You just might rethink the way you’ve always done it.


PETS ABOARD Don’t leave your furry friend at home. Bring ‘em along and keep everyone happy. Concerned about how to take him for a walk?
