I know some have lake camps or house boats so this may not be a question for you. What do you guys take out on the water? Cocktails are usually on most boats. Just curious? :guitar:

When we take food, grapes and peanuts are usually in the cooler. Do daquari's count as food?

I prefer snapper for lunch and hot cherry bendovers for dessert. :D

I never have any alcohol in the boat, but it is in the truck!
We do a lot of what we call "lunch and load". We get to the water at 7 or 8ish, tear it up for a couple of hours, swim and goof off for a couple of more, then eat at the sand bar. Food is KFC or Subway, and snack type finger foods. Good Times!

I am with Tex and AZHawk! I fill the boat with beer and any space that is left is for tuna and tacos! I ain't running a buffet here! If you can't drink it, sleep with it or ski it, it should not be on your boat(except for family time)! I call the marina with my order and a little guy rides his golfcart out to the courtesy docks with my food. I tip well and enjoy not having the crap on the boat!
Just a thought.

Tattoo comes out in a golf cart with chow? That would be sweet! No coolers on the boat, your living the dream man!

Blender for iced mixes..Fully loaded condiment bar which is located in the trunk. 3 different types of beer on tap (bud, bud light and coors). Bilge works well for a beer vat. Also a snow cone maker under the observers seat. I know its not much but soon I plan on stocking tuna cans onboard. :cool:

wow, i really don't drink on the boat either... that's what shore is for, and particularly a deck.

Maybe if i had a houseboat, or pontoon boat, but the ski boat is for rippin it up.

Amen Brother...we draw straws to see who gets to be the DD (designated drunk). :friday:

Seriously, we only let our 3 1/2 year old drink apple juice when she drives the boat! :D

I'm kidding. Booze and Boats Don't Mix...very well, anyway, without a shaker or a blender!

Really though, the driver never drinks on our boat. I mean it! Honest!!!

We have a tradition of setting up on the sandbar for the day, and skiing/boarding on the boat- no food actually eaten on the boat. My dad has been making hot dogs and beans on his small hibachi on the beach for years (since I was a kid) ...and now the kids get pissed if he doesn't do it. It will be different this year with the MC- don't think the hibachi will make the trip. On his boat, ok- the MC- no thanks. :cool:

No food on the MC....that's what the pontoon boat is for. My neighbors (who bought a Malibu) are on the boat all the time until raccoons got a whiff of it and proceeded to destroy the boat every night.


When we do eat on the boat (pontoon remember), my favorite is kabobs. I take one of those huge bags of chicken breast from sams, open it, dump in a bottle of Italian dressing along with a cup or two of olive oil and about a cup or so of lemon. I let it sit in the fridge for a day or two marinating. Take it out, cut it up into bite size pieces, put it on the sticks.

I like to make a TON of them at once, the entire bag. I like to throw them on the grill at the house and cook them about half way, just get them started, then put them into those vacuum sucker bags and shrink wrap them. About ten per bag.

We keep them in the freezer, and when we want to go out and eat in the boat we just grab a few bags and throw them in the cooler. Since they are already half cooked, they only take a few minutes on the grill and you don't need plates or condiments. Only the wood sticks are left over.

Anyway, good for you and super easy and fast.

Boil up a pack or two or three of hot dogs. Stick the dogs on the buns, put the buns/ dogs back into the bag the buns came in. Stick that bag in a spare soft pack cooler or something similar to keep them warm. After a couple hours on the lake, pass em out with a brew. Extremely clean to eat and a good gut fill. Great for all ages....(except the brews of course).

Hi Guys/Gals,

It's been a while, but I'm back.

When out on the boat, the kids need snacks so we can stay out later, but we're having trouble finding snacks that transport well and don't crumble in the boat. (I typically make them eat on the platform.)

We've found beef jerky, licorice, and peanuts.... any other ideas?

Thanks.

Since we live on a lake NO FOOD on the MC. Go mess up the pontoon boat with mustard and ketchup.

If you spill a drink, please be courteous and lick it up so my seats don't get sticky.

We always have peanut butter crackers and chips on board along with sandwiches in the cooler. The kids constantly get crumbs all over the floor and then I get "the look" from my wife for yelling at the kids. So for Fathers Day this year they got me a rechargeable handheld vac. It works great and everyone is happy.

No food on the boat, but we get to the lake about 8ish so we can get the (first come first serve) pavilion. We bring sandwiches,chips, cokes, and plenty of water. Oh yea, the wife has to have oreo's or she gets very cranky.

Does anyone wrap up soft tacos in foil and put them on their manifolds? There was a guy at camp that does this every year and after a day of ripping it up, they are hot and really good. Considering trying it myself this year since I finally got a boat.

When I first got out of college. I trimmed trees for my buddy's company. He would let me work and interview whenever I needed. He had some guys from way down south who would do this. Best lunch ever.

We warm leftover hamburgers and hotdog on the intake, only takes about 45 minutes!:D
Street Rodders have a cookbook with all the recipes for some fantastic meals on the road. Meals that are prepackaged cooked or partially cooked are their favorite.

What if you took off the air cleaner would it act like a convection oven. If so you could do blueberry muffins, biscuits ect.... where could you do the cream gravy? :confused: :D

I don't think it would occur to any of us to bring food on the boat. When we get hungry, we just putt on back home and fire up the grill.

Snowmobiling in the north country...there's the Hot Dogger, the Hot Pot , and the Muff Pot food warmer. Bear in mind these latter two are NOT for casseroles, they're for Hot Dish.

I guess this is a holdover from when the kids were little, they are now 19, 21, and 29. We always had Twizzlers when they were little on the boat. Even now I don't believe they'd even get in the boat without their Twizzlers.

Some traditions never die. (ain't it great!)
