Question Need Help Outfitting for Cruising. :)

Hello Everyone. My husband and I have been working towards running away on a sailboat for years. We have owned numerous smaller vessels and finally upgraded.
We kind of stumbled upon an Ericson 35 Mk II. It was an EXCELLENT deal so we jumped on it. It has been sitting a little while and will need some work, but the more we look at it, the better we realize it is.

It is going to be our first cruising vessel. We are in Florida and are hoping to take it all around the Bahamas, Caribbean, and further eventually. However I am looking for any and all advice for outfitting her for cruising.
It already has a running inboard diesel, small galley (stove/oven and sink) and water tanks (25gallons).

Also and lists (or links to lists) of things we should keep on the boat at all times. Or that you just recommend having on hand....

Looking for any advice, stories, etc...
If you have something you think I should know or just want to tell me but isnt relevant to this post. Feel free to message me.
