At a home on land, there are plenty of options for storing your instrument. It's not necessarily that easy on board. So what do you do? Hard-shell case? Soft-side gig bag? Neither? Do you lay it down on an underused settee, or tuck it away in a spare cabin? How secure is the instrument when you're out on the water and things get choppy?
My Yamaha acoustic is kept in a gig bag that does a fairly decent job of protecting it. Most of the time I leave the guitar in the underused aft cabin. If my daughter is on board (that's her space), I move the guitar to the V-berth by day, and the main salon by night.
What about the rest of you sailors w/ guitars?
