Silvio I will add that the one use I have found for the space bags is storing extra bed linens. I put a set of sheets, pillow cases, a pillow, and comforter in a space bag and toss in a dryer sheet before vacuuming and sealing. It is a good way to store an extra bedding set and have it ready when guests arrive. Every day clothes go in drawers and hanging lockers.

smurphny I keep the clothes I am going to use frequently hanging in locker and in drawers. I also have kayak dry bags in which to keep things like sheets/blankets/nice clothes that I want to keep really dry. One of these is also in my ditch bag with stuff I want to keep dry even if immersed.

i like the vacuum sealers (think seal-a-meal), but tend not to buy in bulk, just buy items in a size that i will use all of before they go bad.

internet.... well i guess it depends on what you want to spend. if his clients are big accounts, you can spend as much as you want.

do a google search for 'sailnet and broadband' or 'sailnet and internet' and you will get plenty of info

good luck

PBzeer I use the big ziplocks for clothes I don't wear frequently. Then in a large plastic container (I use my vee berth as a storage area). Same with dry food I don't use frequently. Others I put in ziplocks or sealing containers and then the cupboard. I also buy boxes of sugar cubes for my tea, and put them in a ziplock (since one cube is just right, I don't have to worry about spillage, particularly in rough weather).

Except for a couple of remote areas, I've always been able to connect through Verizon, from Annapolis to Houston.

Space bags work but dont stay shrunk for long. Ordinary Zip locks work as well if you can find the bid ones. Roll out the air, then zip.

Plastic 'tupperware' with good lids are best. Stops the bugs from spreading!

Depends where you are, I spend my time in the Windies and can count on the fingers of one hand the times my wifi connection has been fast enough to support video. I am glad when I get a connection running at more than 1 meg.

I want air to be able to circulate around my clothes so I store them in mesh bags.

There are several types of sealing plastic containers, from frezzer bags to more solid containers.

Internet coverage of that bandwidth is only available in coastal waters. I am not sure of your location; those in the vicinity will be more helpful.
