All good points guys - keep them coming!
The pocket mask is indeed the odd piece - and I thought hard about including it. I want it on the boat as I'm around beaches and piers and other water users and I'm trained for CPR. I attended one geriatric heart attack casualty as first responder and she was puking all over the shop. Luckily she continued breathing unaided and I got to hand her over to the paramedics without the need to pucker up
A close call and the Memory lives strong in me! There's nowhere else on the craft safe enough to store it.
Good point on the lekkie bits. However there's not a lot of/no wiring in the Tohatsu bar the kill switch, and I can short that with the pliers and duct tape. Might squeeze in a bit of wire and a connector...
Fuel fittings I am looking out for - the Tohatsu fittings are very durable being all metal and are also VERY pricey! On the "Get" list.
The survival bag is a definite yes. I have one that I will keep in the other bag with the ground gear - suitably protected. I don't rate the space blankets. It hasn't been a priority, as I dress for immersion, but I did have occassion to tow another SIB recently, and the shivering passenger got me thinking...
Azzurro -Clean underwear... hopefully things won't get that bad
Amalgamating tape - good idea and I used to carry it on the big boat (one for fuel lines). I think I can cut any leak out of the system very quickly, but a small piece might be handy for under the hood, if the need arose.
Space is at a premium on this boat. A flare box is just too big and will attract more heavy crap. Remember if fishing, I carry a plastic box (for the fish
) and a small tackle box and a cool bag (for the cool
). The rod has to be slung outside the tubes. The fuel tank is also on deck with the ground gear bag - getting cosy in there....
Thanks for the input - any more ideas?? All this will be food for thought for other mini-SIBbers too.
