You may have left out a few other hazardous chemicals cruisers may carry
Like denatured alcohol, ether or WD 40, kerosene, vinegar, fuel and holding tank treatments to mention a few, but you make a good point, if a bit subtle.
I have not been keeping bleach on my boat but there is always the distinct possibility of some synergy of fluids, thinners, acids, oils and detergents that would result in a bad situation.
Normally the acetone, epoxy and varnish kits would be off my boat but it difficult for me to leave the entire kit while out on the water in case of emergencies. Basically, some items should reside at the dockside and some come with you if they can be stowed properly.
I am not an expert or a long term cruiser so I do not know what they recommend in terms of stowing potentially hazardous chemicals so I await the ensuing flood of knowledge that this thread is wanting of.
