I will mention one here that might have been missed: Find a way to secure down the captain!!

For example, if your nav station faces port/stbd, and you are in a sea, you will be flung in/out while trying to plot. A REALLLL nuisance (that eventually makes me sick, incidentally). Lee cloths, or some way to prop you up. I found the most comfortable place in a bad sea was in the floor in the salon, not on a berth (or sea berth). You might too.

Just some other thoughts. Nice thread.
