I have found that, for me, there are three major areas that cause the most problems: 1) Space (stowage), 2) Comfort, and 3) Time.
I originally started as a liveaboard
with plans to go cruising (who hasn't!?
), and who also wants to go sailing as often as possible. So the first problem is where the heck do you put all the STUFF that is necessary to liveaboard, clothing
and tools for when you go cruising, parts
for the current
project(s) (and if you don't have at least three of them, you aren't looking very hard), and very importantly, your wine cellar.
Fortunately, on my boat, I do have a lot of storage
areas and hanging lockers. And, being the anal nut that I am, I have every nook and cranny mnemonically identified and codified into a spreadsheet where I have inventoried everything. ::shrug:: It's the only way I can find some things.
However, I still have too many things that make it appear that my spaces are cluttered. Besides bugging me, it is also a bit of a problem when I want to go sailing: Where to stash all that stuff that is 'out'. The trap I do not want to get into is to get external storage
and then inadvertently start accumulating even MORE stuff.
Okay - that should get this thread started a bit. More later - you've been warned! }:>
