Cruising tip of the month: Cruising with Eggs

posted Feb 15, 2018, 6:52 PM by PacificNorthWest MultihullAssoc

This months tip is about eggs. If you get farm fresh eggs that have not been refrigerated, you don't need to keep them in the cooler. just a cool place out of the sun. Eggs go bad from the inner membrane drying out. if you rotate your eggs once per day it keeps the inside moist and they will last for around a month, same in the refer/cooler if from the store. I keep my eggs in a little plastic box from Amazon < $10:

It is marked on one side EVEN and the other ODD. I flip it based on the calendar day. I spent around 6 years living on a old Piver Loadstar without refrigeration and never had a bad egg. If you like hard boiled eggs or deviled eggs for your next raft-up-potluck you can rapid cool them after boiling by wrapping them in a wet paper towel, packing them into a plastic box and blasting them with canned air. The paper towels with turn to ice, I recommend around 15 min before unwrapping.
Hope you enjoyed this cruising tip.
