Go with the minimum and suggest that your wife shops there for items she desires. That's what my wife considers a treat,- justifies her purchases,-enjoy!

How much clothing? How often do you want to do laundry? How does your wife feel about being seen in the same shorts five days in a row?

Most anywhere you go, there are clothing stores that the locals use (even if they aren't WalMart) and you'll find clothing much more reasonably than in the tourist strips. Besides, it gives you a real everyday souvenir of where you've been.

I'd strongly suggest some "space bags" since they can really keep spare clothing dry--and COMPACT if you decide it isn't needed.

HS-

The "space bags" are a great idea... and they also keep the dirt and moths/bugs off the clothes too.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

SD-
When pilots cross a coastline they often radio in "feet wet" or "feet dry" meaning they are over water or land.
Well...I kind of apply the same mindset to sailing. "Butt wet" and "Butt dry" and as long as the butt is warm and dry, I'm a happy sailor.[g]
"Butt wet" and "happy" are mutually exclusive, unless I'm swimming or better yet diving. Just one of those personal life choices.[g]

HS—

Well said... That's one reason i chose the boat I did... it's pretty dry compared to most monohulls and trimarans its size.
