List of cruising essentials?

I like to make lists when I am bored. Or just for fun.

Do you know of any online lists of things a sailor should have aboard their boat before embarking on a coastal voyage?

It would be fun for me to look at and then check off one thing at a time.

Jennifer Lopez? Why?

So I could barter her for Megan Fox?

"I'll give you Jennifer Lopez, five microbrew, an old spinnaker from a j24, and thre harken ratchet blocks for Megan Fox?"

Have a look here: Focusing on The Important Things when Fitting out a Voyaging Sailboat

Not so much a list as a philosophy, but good nonetheless.

A decent can opener.

Seriously, have some JB Weld onboard. Great stuff. We have a fiberglass tape-reinforced JB Weld repaired pipe nipple on our exhaust system that has now gone halfway around the world. It started as a temporary repair and just seemed so secure that we left it alone even though we have the spare part onboard.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

I would say that your list is pretty much set as is
