If you love your gun so much and you are afraid of it missing when you get back home from the trip, I cannot blame you for wanting to bring your gun on board.

However, like any other person, you must follow the rules.

There are rules concerning the well-being of your gun on the ship, and many of those rules are different with each countries (countries that prohibit firearms trading usually did not have those though, as carrying a gun anywhere within that country is subject to prosecution).

Make sure you are allowed to bring your gun to the ship

Like I have said before, there are countries that allows you to bring guns and there are countries that prohibits you from even buying them.

For example, you are allowed to buy yourself a gun in the United States of America, but you have to comply with the rules.

Perhaps you can buy guns in other countries as well (legally, of course), but you are not allowed to let the public see you carry a gun.

Rules differ for each country. Learn about the gun laws on your country first before you decide to bring one into the ship.

If you are allowed to buy and bring your gun on the ship…

Then do not forget to unload the gun first. It is very absurd to carry a loaded gun at all times, and the absurdity certainly would not be gone when you are riding a boat. Keep the magazine off the gun and the safety on at all times. We do not want to risk shooting another person by accident.

To end it all, keep it concealed

Keep your gun concealed and away from prying eyes. Keep it close to you, but you do not have to carry it around. A gun holster is always available to buy, and it is a pretty dope thing to have.

In the end, what you absolutely need if you want to bring a gun on ship is responsibility. Be a responsible gun owner and do not let your gun off your sight for a second.

A gun is only as dangerous as the one who is carrying it, after all. Hope this answer your question on how should firearms be transported in a boat.
