Taking our 4.7m SIB to Spain Ė Have I forgotten Anything?

Weíre taking our 4.7m SIB to Spain mid August and after a lot of research Iíve come up with the following list to hopefully ensure that Iím compliant with the local laws:

RYA PB2 with Coastal Endorsement
ICC
Insurance
Proof of Ownership
SSR Registration Number on the boat
Large Fender (for helping us drag the boat up the beach)
Flares
First Aid Kit
Life Jackets
Flag Ė Ensign
Flag Ė Orange (for towing)
Outboard cover
Anchor
Paddles

My eyes are going square looking at this list and trying to ensure that I havenít forgotten anything important so I thought Iíd ask you guys and gals on here. Two sets of eyes must be better than one, and hopefully a forum full of sets of eyes is better than just mine and the wifeís.

We canít wait to go now, just counting down the days. We live just outside Manchester so itíll be great to feel the sun for a change. ;-)

Thanks in advance for any pointers or suggestions. :-)

I'm sure others will advise on the *legal* stuff required for Spain but in terms of kit for safety etc this is a great topic:

What kit do you carry on your SIB?

Mandatory:
- Signaling mirror
- Torch
- Fog horn
- Check 3 flares are not out of date (this is very very significant!)
- Lifejackets should be 100N at least for each crew member (although it is mandatory one per each possible passenger) ; kids must have kid size
- Manual bilge pump
- 2 lines for mooring
- Bucket
- Fire extinguisher, I believe 3kg 50B for your engine
- In case night use: white all-round light, red-green ligh for bow.
- In case of more than 5 miles from shelter: boat license (which means: VHF water-proof, VHF license).
- Watch out if your engine is more than 25HP and tiller control: should be steer driven.

Nevertheless I belive the most important point is feeling like having a good time.

Have a nice time!

My close friend, John Shelton, owes his LIFE and the life of his friend to a whistle. His friend's dog did not make it. They would have too perished if it were not for his whistle. Please read:

I believe SOLAS 100N life Jackets must be equiped with a whistle. And also, mandatory: PFDs should be marked with the name and registration number of the boat.
