[QUOTE=c.captain;162731]You know you might be right, I believe there is something in 46USC regarding the fo’c’sle card which specifies minimum provisions to be provided including coffee. I don’t think there is anything in 46CFR however especially regarding “oncoming watch”.
Now what about that SHIT with Chicory in it…that CRAP should be BANNED from any vessel!
ok ,found it but it says nothing about coffee
I love how they still have “whaling vessels” included even though US flagged whaling is now extinct[/QUOTE]
CG 704 (Rev) 3-67 the “Forecastle Card” - I had one posted at the house for a while till one of the kids took it down. ( “said crew agree to conduct themselves in an orderly, faithful, honest, and sober manner…”)
It calls for 3/4 ounce of Coffee (green berry) a day. Also salt pork, beans, rice, corn meal etc.
