4. 2 burner stove
5. Hand held GPS ($70)
6. Paper charts
7. Rowing dinghy
8. VHF
9. Wind chicken
10. Sun shower
11. Diesel engine
12. 1-2 solar panels

My list stuff you REALLY don't need:
1a. Refrigeration
1. Roller furling
2. Computer
3. Elect charts
4. Windlass (small boat, manageable anchors, youth)
5. Wind gauges - mast head stuff
6. Pressure water
7. Generator
8. SSB
9. Sat phone
10. TV
11. Most anything else in sailing catalogs

Nice list .

Was kinda curious as to how that compared to the "Essentials" in the Cruising Equipment spreadsheet in my sig (it's been a while since I read it!)...........No Wind Chicken on "my" list , but I see you don't include a bucket .

I think I replied to this thread already?

34 (me), 33 (Charlotte), 3 (cora), 8 weeks (Lyra). We're down in Mexico, currently anchored in San Blas waiting on weather.

Although the minority we've met lots of people in their 30s and 40s. There are some 20-ish people but we're on the family track.

Headed across the Pacific in 10 months. Totally psyched.
