Safety is one of the main concerns when planning a long term cruise. Since we purchased the boat we invested a lot into safety, adding important equipment such as life raft (Ocean Safety), AIS receiver, handheld VHF, new life vests and safety lines and EPIRb (with GPS).
Another priority is care about the environment. We have installed 180W solar panels connected to 300Ah batteries which provide us enough electricity to stay indendent of the shore. Victron inverter allows us to power our laptops and cameras. Wherever we sail we are using mostly sails to minimise usage of the diesel engine.
