FREE Sample of The Boat Galley Cookbook

By Carolyn Shearlock © 2012 • all rights reserved

Get a FREE sneak peek of The Boat Galley Cookbook -- 33 recipes and other useful info in a 28-page downloadable PDF.

Jan and I — the authors — think you’ll find The Boat Galley Cookbook a useful addition aboard your boat, whether you’re planning a voyage around the world or weekends at the marina.  But we know that just saying that isn’t enough.  If you’re like the two of us, you want to see it.  To sample it.

And so we asked the publisher, International Marine, to create a 28-page PDF sampler, with 33 recipes and a bit of other useful info.  Believe it or not, that’s only about 5% of the complete book! Get more details about the book.

We tried to select information that you could use right now, that would show our everyday style of cooking from scratch with lots of variations and substitutions. And yes, we want you to say “WOW! I’ve got to get the rest of the book.”

Just sign up in the box below to get the download link.  Thank you so much for your interest!

How to Copy


  1. It’s a great book and really useful. I’m from UK en route to caribbean and tbis book really fulfils a need! Not so good on Kindle tho – I need somehow to transfer it to my tablet. Keep up the good work. Margaret

    • If you get the Kindle app for your tablet, then sync, it should appear. I agree — I think it’s much easier to use the electronic version on a tablet than the Kindle, just because of the size of the screen. Glad you like it!

  2. Would love a sample of this, when I tried to download it- I get a message that ” something went wrong” try again. Will not download

    • Cindy Hodgins Smith — send me a note at carolyn (at) theboatgalley (dot) com and I’ll email it to you. That sometimes happens, particularly if you have a slow internet connection, since it’s almost 1 meg.

  3. Just ordered mine.

  4. I love love love my copy (paper edition). I have so many color tags in it, it looks like I am going for my Master’s in Tasty Food. Plus, there are already splatter marks on the page for the Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe – always a good sign! Thank you, ladies, so much for your book, and for sharing your knowledge and experience with us

  5. I have both the printed edition and ebook editions as I can’t stand being away from my favorite books. I even used it last night and whipped up some beer bread in about 8 minutes and baked at 375 for 45. Instead of just dill, I added 1 Tablespoon of dill and ground rosemary.

  6. Most used book on my boat!!!

  7. I really love my copy of the boat galley cookbook. It is extremely useful to this newbie!!!

  11. Love love love all the helpful ideas. Not just a cookbook

  12. What a great book, not only cookbook but all around best for live aboards!

  20. Both the book and the e-mail tips are great. I have been salinger and weekend live aboard for 37 years but Carolyn’s practical advice has either confirmed what I was already doing or gave me an idea to improve!
