Just a bit of fun...
What modification have you made to your boat that you feel has been most useful/beneficial/added to your enjoyment or just made it easier to solo helm it, fairylight's dangling of every rail on the boat maybe... thruster??

For solo cruising: centre cleats and lines, a revelation

Not strictly mods but for single handed broads sailing cruising all halyards led aft over the cabin roof so the main can be depowered and dropped into the topnlift if necessary without leaving the helm from between your knees.

Made some rod rests to fish from the boat, simply get some pipe insulation cut into 12" lengths heat a piece of tube pipe old screwdriver over the hob till really hot then touch it onto the insulation and create grooves across it, clip it onto your rail and hey presto the rod stays put and doesn't slide about and doesn't get scratched.
Oh yeah and a stern thruster made life much easier when it's a bit blowy and you are flying solo

My best modification has been to replace the in-mast furling to slab reefing and a different rig. The boat sails so much better, just shame about the helmsman!!
