Re: Getting rid of my clothes....

deltaten - I like the idea of a small hanging nylon suitcase. I'm going to look for one. I have a couple of dresses I would like to bring, plus, a few pair of nice dress shorts/shirts for my hubs, for dinners at night away from the boat. Nothing fancy.

Arjen - being a hippy is great!

aeventyr60 - sounds perfect to get all of the use out of a pair of pants, shorts, etc.

Minnewaska - we love the zip off pants/shorts. We'll bring those, plus shorts in that material. I do think I need to vacuum seal some cooler weather clothes, ie...fleece jacket, etc. Thnx for the reminder of doing that!

Re: Getting rid of my clothes....

We have a couple of bolsters on our settees that are actually stuff sacks to hold our off-season clothes, guest linens, etc. I have mixed feelings about the vacuum bags, yes, we use some, but they also set the creases very deeply into folded clothing if you pull out all the air and shrink them too aggressively. +1 ... no, +1000 ... on the new easy-care fabrics.

Most of what we store in season are linens and towels, which when folded neatly come out fine.

For seasonal stuff, a quick pre-season washing or hanging out and we're back in action.

Re: Getting rid of my clothes....

Thnx wingNwing and Minnewaska for the info on different ways to store sheets, clothing, and the vacuum bags, and on how to refresh the clothing once you've removed it from the bags. I wondered about wrinkles.

Happy sailing!
