I'll have a bit of a google for a Bruce then.
A folding grapnel is great for a SIB, get your self at least 2m of 6mm chain and 10-20m of cheep 8mm line. You should have an eye on the front of your SIB, this will be the best place to secure it. You may also want a bucket to put the Anchor in when in the boat, this will double up as a bailer if you take on any water.
Don't forget to check the weather and tides and take at least a cheep compass, inshore flare pack and mobile phone with you
