I'm going to try living and building projects on a Sailboat this year...
How to choose which hardware to bring?

Teeny++ 2.0 with pins.  It's small.  It's powerful.  It works well on a breadboard.  It programs like an Arduino.

Take some solar panels perhaps, and maybe some data logging components.

First, you need to ask some questions to define your goals and needs more clearly.

Will you just be living aboard in an urban harbor (where you could mail-order any parts you overlooked)? Or heading off for a long stay on a desert island?

Will you be building gadgets for the boat that will permanently tie up Arduinos and parts (and maybe should use the smaller, DIP-form-factor clones)?  Or will you be doing "educational" projects (which might mean more proto shields so you can leave multiple projects set up and swap Arduinos among them)?
