A safe is generally not such a good idea. Boats are generally less robust than the materials in the safe, and as such, can be damaged to remove said safe. Concealment is usually better than an obvious hiding place, such as a safe. Also, many safes are not very well thought out for a marine environment, where the salt-laden air and constant moisture will cause serious problems with the locking mechanism, if not the actual safe container itself. Safes are also relatively heavy, especially if you want a fire-resistant one.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
