Unrealistic solution...though would be hilarious if implemented.

Step 1: Find an air tight box
Step 2: Put things in said box
Step 3: Attach box to (or slightly above) anchor
Step 4: Drop anchor
Step 5: Profit!

Thank you for your time.

live aboards try to enjoy life as much as possible - they want to make their boat their home instead of a weekend camper. There's always the compromise, but full time aboard is a home.

How many people display (except on their person) their valuable jewelry in their shore-side home.
Perhaps Iím just unobservant, or run in plebeian circles; but I donít recall EVER seeing a jewelry display outside of a store or museum.

Gord, haven't you ever seen the Oscars or the Academy Awards on TV? Jewelry is meant to be displayed, usually on a spare trophy wife. Boaters usually can't afford the trophy wife, let alone the jewelry though.

heh... Himself compromised by buying an older boat and acquiring an older trophy wife who has jewelry coming out her ears already from grandmama and maman...

but I do need to give some thought to where it can best be stored in our little hole in the water... I am thinking that there must be a nice hidey hole in some grimey corner of the bilge for a little waterproof box. jewelry, especially the good stuff, doesn't take much room...



I just love a frugal man ; -)

My Old Man always said. " If you can't do it right, don't do it at all."

Well - didn't read all eight pages, but we keep jewellery aboard (nowhere else to keep it!) Some lives in air tight boxes, but also a jewellery box fits neatly on the shelf in the aft cabin.

To display some (not all) get, some fine-grain netting and stretch it into a picutre frame. Paint the frame if you want. Attach frame to bulkhead. Hang earrings off the netting. Works for us! Have sailed several thousand miles, incluidnga cross Biscay, with dangly earrings swaying and displayed. (And no, we do not wear earrings when at sea.)

How do I store my jewlery?

Well strictly speaking from a gents perspective, I prefer the more secure briefs to boxer shorts.

Leaving them lying about is.... just too dangerous...

Might as well dive in here. My wife's real jewelry is stored in a safety deposit box at our bank. She has lots of jewelry on board and it's all over the place but this is costume jewelry, mostly self-made or made by fellow cruisers. Earrings of shells and necklaces of beach glass. That's what most of the women cruisers wear. Some of the guys too.

Nicolles is the type you can eat. OK, not you, but a 3 year old. I only buy her candy jewelry.

Now please no one tell here there's anything different!

My wife looooooves jewelry but she leaves the expensive ones at home, so no Rolex or what-so-ever on board. The jewelry and other objects are kept in toolboxes, so she can sort the stuff in type, color, material etc. The boxes are kept...eh well...that's her secret, but maybe in the engine room or behind the closet or in the chain locker or...
