So what essential technologies would you take and preserve? i.e. books

Medical texts? Physics texts? A years supply of people magazine and the National Enquirer?

I think you're going to need a barge to tow behind.

Ahh, so that's where I'm supposed to stow the nubile breeding stock.

I love it when a plan comes together.

As most cruisers don't seem to have the ability to sail anywhere without company I am forming a Rally so we can all die together.
I don't know what to call it: "Together to Hell" had a ring to it... ARC was good, but taken Is fARK taken?

It will be quite inexpensive for each of you: 1 can meat/sausages per day

Also gonna need a blog to keep those onshore entertained whilst they glow in the dark / wait to get eaten by Zombies.

On that point it would help if you were the youngest End of the World boat based survivor - with a pair of large breasts. which after the radiation shouldn't be a problem to grow So, won't be a complete disaster

Anything else?

Check that boat is secured to mooring with Chinese chain - so that it will definitely seperate from the mooring weight.

The world is going to end again?! Oh dear, that's not good. I guess I had better schedule a pump-out. And get my hair done.

Given the amount of stuff that is being suggested (as cargo) you might have to trade-up the boat for something a touch bigger
