Not so weird, MylesK:

From wikipedia:

"Research has demonstrated the use of cyanoacrylate in wound closure as being safer and more functional than traditional suturing (stitches).[10] The adhesive has demonstrated superior performance in the time required to close a wound, incidence of infection (suture canals through the skin's epidermal, dermal, and subcutaneous fat layers introduce extra routes of contamination),[10] and final cosmetic appearance.[11][12]"

1/2 as many clothes and 2x as much money : )
Agree with the others who posted.
2 pair sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat, iPod, a couple collared polo shirts and a pair of light slacks, few swim suits, shorts, Tees, toiletries, a pair of light pants and long sleeves - I use scrub pants and a light shirt in case uve had enough sun.
Pack in a soft collapsable duffel. Easier to store away on boat then some big suitcase.
Have fun!

Buy microfiber, quick dry clothing. Shorts, shirts and u-wear. You can easily wash in a sink and cut down the packing substantially.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Money to buy drinks.
Swimming shorts. Hat. Sunglasses. Job done
Departing from American ports... Passports are necessary.

On the underpants. You all stand in a circle, remove said clothing and hand them to the person on the right and you accept the one coming from the left and put them on. Do this either once a day or every other day... your choice. Note: The number of people you have on board will indicate the number of underwear changes you will have.

And the gender of people may indicate comfort of said underpants. You may find yourself getting a bit of a crack-floss
