I forgot the MOST IMPORTANT item to NOT have on board.
A SCHEDULE, it will get you in trouble every time, you go when you should not and stay when you should go. To put it another way, a schedule is the most dangerious thing aboard your boat.

A very knowledgable captain told me that if you are meeting someone to get on your boat that you will tell them the place to meet you OR the date but not both. This is read in conjunction with the SCHEDULE admonition.

My experience and as always, YMMV
