STEP 1: If you have a good ocean rated sailboat you will have significant-sized cockpit drains (or some other route for rapid egress of water) So STEP 1 is to plug them or block them effectively to prevent the loss of any parts, bolts etc.

My other suggestion is to take a photo (IPhone/Smart Phone) pf any complicated portion before disassembling it.
