For a second time in a dozen years, I'm trying to fit a quart into a pint pot (it's the skipper's third attempt at it and he seems quite serene). In 2001 it seemed painful but ultimately not too hard and anyway we cheated storing furniture and more in a Pickford's warehouse against for our return. This time there is no furniture except the bits that seem to have persisted in our UK garage cum boat store and I don't plan to return to life ashore in the short term. The huge amount of ornaments, pictures, books and other sentimental clutter will have a place to go, mostly in the boat store. A small selection of silver smithing or beading tools and supplies will stow away on board. Then there are clothes...

Perhaps my wardrobe downsizing approach should be bottom up - not from socks and tights through trousers and belts to hats but more from the point of view of what a liveaboard girlie needs. A list of items for say two or three weeks without a washday across a range of climates/seasons plus a few smarter outfits for parties or meals ashore and one or two outfits for very special occasions. That could be a much smaller collation and might even fit in the locker space available if I can bring myself to do it.
