Boat provisioning in St. Thomas?

I am planning a crossing on a sail boat and can find alot of upscale provisioning in Tortola. Is there anything like that on St. Thomas where you can get pre-cooked foods? Conch fritters that are frozen and ready to heat? Lasagna? Stuff like that? I know where the regular grocery stores are. Just want ready to eat stuff.

The frozen food departments at the major grocery stores and cost-u-less have a large variety of prepared commercial foods like lasagna,meat and seafood entrees,and appetizers but I haven't seen the personally cooked and frozen type food options like I see on Tortola.

You may reach out to www.grocerygoddess.com. The proprietor does excellent provisioning for villas. I realize you have a few extra requirements than may be the "usual" order for them but the proprietor is very accomodating and likely will be able to help you. And, they deliver.

I did a crossing on an 80' sailboat and we provisioned out of St. Thomas with relative ease. Then again, we also had to charter yacht chefs on board, so we ate like kings the entire time!

Marlene,
I seem to remember a while back you were looking for a boat to buy. Sounds like you were successful?? What did you get? Just curious, since I am not cruising anymore, but still enjoy the lifestyle and keeping up with those who are involved. What are your plans?
All the best,
Juanita

Juanita, didn't buy.....:( yet...

Getting a boat out of Tortola to rent. Boat we are renting is going to be big since family and friends coming equal 10 with hubby and I. It is nice to just take the boat and drop it off when done. Still looking for a boat to buy tho.

Marlene,although I`m not familiar with Fine Food Afloat, Capt. Jay ought to know, CYOA is a bare boat company with what,(I`m guessing) 15 boats???(sometimes the guest hire a Captain).
Sounds like a good suggestion as you are renting a bare boat.

Capt. Jay, how IS John Jaccob?
I last heard him described as the fat guy in the Frenchtown marina who is always angry & makes you feel like your a child who did something wrong on his dock but you didn`t!
Ah, we go back a long way!
