Here are a few sample Amazon comments – note, of current 38 comments, all but 3 are Five Star, which makes the effort Carolyn and I put into trying to write a book we would have found invaluable when we left to go cruising, all the more worthwhile.

“The recipes are widely varied, well written and easy to follow. I especially appreciate the large “Meatless Main Dishes” section. Not that I am vegan but rather meat is not always available or kept easily while on a lengthy passage.”  … “Jimmy, The Skipper”

“For the novice or beginning cruiser, like myself, it really gives some great insight into all the things I wouldn’t normally think of. The Equipping the Galley, Provisioning, and Food Substitutions were particularly useful as well as the endless supply of great boat friendly recipes.”  … bluesboy

“What a great reference…not only recipes but everything else you need to know, not just about cooking, but all aspects of living on a sailboat, whether it’s for a weekend or you’re a full-time cruiser. It’s an amazing compilation of tips, tricks and methods to live and eat well while cruising. A great book and well worth the money. Don’t go cruising without it!”  … Margaret McGovern

“This book is well organized and focuses on planning before you set sail. I like the recipes as they seem like things I would cook for the crew. Not too many ingredients or time required for most. The best part was all of the helpful “how to” tips throughout the book”  … An Amazon Customer

And my copy of The Boat Galley Cookbook, both in print and Kindle versions has camped at regattas and traveled all the way to Denali National Park, RV-ing.  Great for both!

My The Boat Galley Cookbook, in print and Kindle versions has camped at regattas and traveled all the way to Denali National Park, RV-ing. Great for both!

I realized it is a great cookbook for the home, too. Organizing a galley (kitchen) on shore is important. I would recommend this book for anyone who cooks on a boat, or in an RV, or simply wants some straight-forward recipes and kitchen ideas. I got the Kindle Fire version so I can add it to my library with zero shelf space, another nice feature when on a boat or traveling in an RV…. Tiki Sailor on utoob “Tiki”
