Store your spray paint cans parallel with the hull. 

Seriously. If you must keep spray paint cans on board do not lay them athwart ship.  The wind has died off but the waves continue so now we are abeam of them and rocking like crazy.  Boat is squeaking and popping and the cans are doing their thing. 

Store cans in line with the bow and stern.  The stupid little ball in them makes a crazy annoying shruump, shruump every time the ship sways from rail to rail.  Every time the boat rolls I make a mental note to move the cans.  Then of course, when the weather is back to being nice enough to do chores I forget how annoying the noise is.  Now maybe that it’s written down I’ll recall to move the cans tomorrow morning.  Maybe.
