The P is for personal I didn't know if it's procedurally correct but I have mine strapped to my life jacket.

as good as anything is rubber door mats from B&Q couple of quid each tie wrap on on rope last for ages and can be cut to go right round the bow we use them whilst inspecting jetty piles.

cheers

This is my current grab/survival case I'm not going to list all the items I'm just explain a few items that may not clear in the pics: the mini mess tin is a mini salt water distiller kit, spare long range hang held vhf radio aerials, military strobe light, the small plastic see through tub is a full fishing kit, CD in the lid is a good cheap signal mirror an extensive first aid kit with sutures and hermostats is in the plastic zip lock bag along with basic dual band mobile phone and spare batteries, Vaseline (not just for medical use it can be used for fire starting and waterproofing and servicing survival kit) I tend to use a mini fishing rod more than the standard ones when fishing off the SIB so I keep that in the case with feathers and lures, A big kit admittedly but I do often camp on small bays only accessible by boat. I'm into bushcraft and survival so my grab case is orientated that way.

What kit do you carry on your SIB?

You certainly were a Scout.

It's likely there and I can't see it but do you have a Barton Clam Seal? Handy bit of kit to carry imo

I keep that grab box at bushcraft and survival camps as well, the sanitary towels make the best large wound packing and dressings as well as good for fire lighting when you have nothing else for tinder

The mini carry out, all you need along with a couple of Gregg sausage rolls surely? Half the boaters on loch lomond live on that diet Friday and Saturday. The other half forgot the sausage rolls!
