    Have you ever thought about this

    Advertisements
    So a boat with a crew of 110-130. The money that gets taken out for each guy's pay is about $250 for food.

    So that is like 32,000 a month what in the heck do they do with all that money? It can't cost that much to feed the crew. I was just pondering on it today

    You can tell me if I am dumb

    250 / 30 = 8 dollars a day......not bad to eat 2 - 3 meals a day.

    That is actually about right. That is what airman in the dorms figures for food that goes to the chow hall.

    Apparently it all doesn't go to the boat, some goes to the base galley. But yes the figures are right! It is expensive to feed those boys!
