what stays, what goes?
Kind of oblique to Tybeefolk''s query, but WTH:
We found that the conventional wisdom against glass (& breakables) aboard, did not hold water (pun intended).
We''ve had Bleach leak out of the plastic bottle, due to abrasion and/or puncture. On the other hand, in nine years of cruising-liveaboard, we never broke a glass bottle.
We also prefered eating off china plates, which we never broke.
Yes, within reason, you CAN bring some of your "finer" things aboard.
