And it's best not to rush things. Check the entire boat over and make sure everything is working. Flush each head, run the shower, check that it drains..etc. Better to find an issue at the dock then run into it that night.
This is on big reason why sleeping aboard is a great option, although we haven't slept aboard our past few trips - just spend the time needed checking things over.
