I know this must have been discussed before, especially for those of us that are relatively new to the down sized life. Additionally individual needs vary etc.

I'm looking to move aboard permenantly in the near future. I'm a professional photographer that despite the trend in our business to look like something the cat dragged in, I believe in dressing professionally. We photographers usually have to sacrafice luggage allowances to equipment anyhow. On a recent shoot in Panama I really streched things by bringing only a blazer, 2 khakis and 2 polos and 2 t-shirts for a week long shoot. I managed to cram it all in around my light stands anyhow. I've found my top siders do really well for all conditions and still look smart with a blazer. -I even hiked up to the cross on Isla Taboga and later got them thoroughly soaked photographing in the Parque Metropolitano and then showed up to meet a VIP subject in those shoes the next day. After all that, they're the only shoes I bring. They still look smarter than the Crocs a photographer friend of mine wears everywhere.

So to the point: In my home life I tend to have way too much of everything. (Though a recent shipmate of mine had 12 pairs of shoes - on board!) So what would the benchmark (recommended list) of personal items be for a professional that splits time from photography, ESL and meeting with editors (or VIP subjects) and lives on a 35' Spray? This topic seems to be really scarce in books.
