Prepping My Boat for the End of the World

Pushed to the edge by posts in another thread, I am prepping my boat for the end of the world:

- the engine out of its pit and to be attached under the keel,
- converting her to a junk rig,
- getting 6 sets of Sunbrella made sails in China,
- a barrel of epoxy, 6 barrels of antifouling,
- 12 reels of Poly rope,
- 6 sextants, 6 clocks, 6 sets of assorted tools,
- wood burning galley stove ...

Anything else?

6 drums of spirulina.

Enough foul tasting survival food to keep you alive until the final apocalypse.

Well, Costner's apocalypse had dirt being worth quite a bit. Maybe put a few thousand pounds of black, volcanic 'ballast' in the bottom, and a few different plant seeds?

If we're depending on you to re-start civilization, we'd better hope you remember the eggplant!

couple of 100+ pound anschors with the biggest chain you can find (when the end comes there's going to some tide swell).

Now we've got some forward thinking!

Be sure to bring combination doorlocks and earplugs, though. They can get a bit screechy at times
