Over the past few years I have been slowly acquiring and switching out items that are more "boat worthy" and packing up the others for the kids. You do not really give much thought to some of these things when you live in a big house but things are different on a boat.
I started with switching from paper books to Kindle Books . I love my Kindle and many books are free.
Then I headed to the kitchen. A galley and a kitchen are similar but not the same. I will be cooking with propane not electricity, my cupboard space is much less, things move (insert spill) and my work area is smaller. So I will be giving my daughter the expensive, large pots and pans and taking these nesting pots
Boats move..sometimes a lot. Also when in the south you need to contend with humidity and bugs. So having good quality storage containers that will not spill is essential. They should also be square as they nest better and take up less space than round ones. I have found that I really love my Lock & Lock Containers because you know the lids are shut tight. I also still have all my Tupperware Modular Mates that are square or rectangle. My daughter gets all the round ones. So she is happy too.
The next item I gave thought to was the food to go into these pots and containers. Since we plan to anchor as much as possible because budget living and marinas do not play well together. Getting groceries onto the boat via dinghy can be a tricky task. Who wants wet flour ? Experience as a scuba diver told me that dry bags were about to become my new best friends.
