Interestingly our cruising doesn't require us to be at sea for months, yet we find it is necessary to still have a somewhat well stocked boat. Shops are not handy when cruising.(At least where we cruise).

We also don't have a lot of worldy possessions on the boat, honestly just simple normal stuff and what an average sailor, doing average cruising would deem essential on boat.

This stuff adds up more than you would think...
