Ok, so here is my last ditch scenario plan:
I happen to own a 50 foot boat. It is equipped with a fresh water tank that holds 1000 gallons. An ice maker with a large hold capable of storing months worth of food. I can make ice directly off the salt water so it doesnt draw from my supply of fresh. 4 bunks, fridge,microwave,shower, head, stove, etc.... All of that runs off a Northern Lights Gen Set independent from the main power plant (850 cat). I have 2 1500 gallon fuel tanks. I dont know exactly how long I could run the gen set alone of 3000 gallons but its a damn long time. 6 months minimum.
The boat is also equipped with dual 6 foot Furuno sweep radars to monitor the horizon for any impeding danger. Every piece of communication device available for a boat. ( monitor airways) 3 massive sodium lights that could blind a possible enemy while I took shots at them. I even have a tv with a dvd player to kill time lol.
The boat is also equipped with a tail gate stern. (stern opens hydraulically) So I can easily take along a atv, truck, skiff to go onto islands etc... That could come in handy for missions on land.
And finally and most important the boat is rigged with the capability to fish for multi-species at any given time. Long line for fish, traps for lobsters, crabs etc.... Abundant unlimited food supply.
I also have numerous spare parts aboard. I could practically fix any imaginable problem that could occur. I also have a number of pumps aboard and could easily rig a bilge pump to gather more fuel at different locations. (Most lighthouses have diesel back up generators)
I assume there will be people on the water as well if all goes to hell but I figure my odds are better that way. Obviously way less people than on land. I can easily move about from place to place without worry about road blocks etc... Also having grown up on the water I would likely have an advantage over many of the other people who might try the same.
So thats my plan. Ive actually kinda done a test run. We loaded the car on the boat and took it to Florida for the winter once and used it like you would a camper
