Advise to those moving aboard?

Handiest thing is an inexpensive "flexible grabber" The kind where you push one end and little claws extend from the other. I use it nearly daily. Removesdog hair from the cockpit drains and my hair from the shower drain, retrieves items dropped in the bilge, holds little things like a third hand. Cost about $4.00.
Biggest problem is recurring small leaks and condensation drips. For everyone found and stopped, a new one appears within a month.
For living aboard in port, an adequate 120v electrical system. For sailing, Sail the weather not the calandar.
