Sailor Rations in the 18th Century

What did sailors eat in the 1700s? It wasn't all hardtack, even though there was plenty of that. The provisions for each man were strictly enforced, because it could be a long time before the ship took on more supplies. Jon Townsend uses a published sailor's diary to explain how sailors ate, as he recreates a recipe for burgoo.
