Absolutely! Kind of hard to stow in a micro cruiser, but worth it when you anchor for the evening. And using no electric power you can provide your own relaxation and music, which does feel a bit like sailing. Last summer we got a "boat guitar" for $50. It's a used guitar with a plywood top, accurate fretboard, and remarkably good sound, something we don't have to worry about and for which we can use a garbage bag as a "case". Keeps the package smaller.

We set up a tarp and camped on shore during a series of terrific night time thunderstorms, really nice to have the guitar in the camp. I think it rained every single day of our week's vacation, but fortunately not all day. Nice sunrise each day.
