I thought the Excell spreadsheet Mr. Gainer posted covered everything required for an ocean crossing, but on looking again at the "Food & Supplies" list noticed the absence of Rum, or is it considered a "medicinal fluid". Come to think of it, probably don't need to put it on the list, kinda like fuel, you always know about how much you got aboard.

Excluding Spiced Rum there are only three main types of Rum, white, golden and dark but if you consider the variety of brands and flavors of Rum and its accoutrements I found it necessary to have a workbook just for tracking this item. In that workbook is a spreadsheet for each brand to allow for stowing and tracking the verities and an additional sheet for the different types of coke and everything else that is necessary to enjoy the Rum.

I am interested in hearing if there are other items that should be included in my workbook. It is a very fluid work and growing. The medical page and the survey page are not original with me but are copied from elsewhere on the web.
All the best,
Robert Gainer

I noticed you had sail repair tools, but i did not see any spare canvas, sail material, webbing, sail slugs(if your track uses slugs), sail repair tape, chafe gear, spare halyards or lengths of line (rigging materials of various sorts). Did I miss them in there somewhere?

The line and wire for the rig is found on the “parts and job” page. I have the lengths of all the running rigging there but you are right and leather, webbing and cloth are on board but not on the list. I also have a Tupperware container with slugs, cars, shackles, etc but that’s also missing from the list. I will make that correction.
Thanks and all the best,
Robert Gainer

That's a helluva list. I'm guessing your quarterberth is for storage only?

No need for a list...

There's no need for a list as there are NO good deals on a "project boat". In 35 years of boating I've yet to see a project boat cost less, in the end, than a well maintained example of the same boat.

Excellent list, but no condoms on it...whenever there's more than one person aboard, safety comes first.

The reason I have a list is so that my project boats do make sense. I buy at a good price and sell at a good price. I track all expenses and labor and only buy boats that need the type of work I can do instead of boats that need expensive contracted labor. Including parts and my labor most boats are sold at a profit.

The Tartan 34C I am working on now is my personal boat and I live aboard. I am spending more on her then I would if she was just a project boat. But even including that I will probably come close to break even when I sell her unless I keep her too long and everything that is now new becomes old and worn.
All the best,
Robert Gainer

Almost all my trips are single-handed and I already have too much stuff onboard so no room for unneeded gear.
All the best,
Robert Gainer

PS. Single-handed as in running the boat by myself, not as in using one hand.
