  • Things to keep on your boat...

    So we started talking about this in the chat, what is the list of things people should consider keeping on their boat in case of an emergency or problem - mainly related to quick fixes that come up with the electrical system, motor etc.

    So here are just a few of the things I keep on the boat

    I re did all my wiring so I diagrammed all the wiring and keep a copy on the boat

    I made a list of all the fuses and where they are and keep a spare fuse for everything on the boat

    Basic tools, zip ties, electrical tape, duct tape

    Jumper cables

      From my experince...

      Jumper cables/ jump box in case your cranking battery runs down. A first aid kit so you don't bleed all over your boat if you get a hook stuck in you or something.

          That is a great idea - I should have learned from what happened at the Champ teams with Jim and G

            I think a set of dry clothes in the unfortunate situation when one falls over board.

                :Agree: (Although, the Brass pole kept breaking the pedestal mount.)

                  A firearm, soft cloth to wipe the screen on your electronics (and sunglasses), chap stick, binoculars in case you're near a beach, bug spray (although deet is highly detectable by bass in water causing adverse reactions) and a partridge in a pear tree.

                      I also keep a firearm on the boat at all times. You never know when or where you will need one.

                        Just don't do it on the Riva if you venture on the main river...MD laws apply....at least from what I read and could discern from what is on the web....
