Atkins for Race Boats

Cabin cushions, anchor, port-a-potty. antenna on mast, smaller windex, lighter sheets, crew baggage, large metal gas can, excess sail inventory, miscellaneous unused lines (except emergency lines), battery charger. All these things need to go! The competition is definitely faster and one reason is they are lighter. I need to assess each item on the boat...large or small and determine if it is absolutely necessary. I estimate I can get rid of a couple hundred pounds easily.

The crew has informed me that the cooler and beer must stay! Can't lose the icebox...but will limit it to one bag of ice per race!
