A versatile word

If you're ever going to be stuck on a desert island, you'd better bring this word along. There is a 7 letter word in the English language that, when one letter at a time is removed, will spell progressively shorter words of 6 letters, 5 letters, and so on all the way down to 1 letter. Unlike other words with which this can be done, there is no re-arranging necessary after each letter removal.
What is the word?

I don't get the desert island reference.
