It would work very nicely, Karl is bound to have an old one lying around somewhere.

You could tape up the PRVs and paint it with some white gloss though?

3 litres at 232BAR = 700 litres/24.5Cu.ft approx. Not a huge amount of air but I've noticed when filling that the tubes take a while to fill (i.e. 1BAR) and the final pressure is achieved very quickly thereafter.

I'm not as space restricted as you (nor do I need to remove everything every time the boat comes out) but my typical day out is not dissimilar. Rather than Peliboxes I used two of tesco's (or similar) solid plastic "lunch" boxes (prob 2L each?). One holds tools, bits and bobs, small bits of rope, tape, cable ties etc. The other holds my mini rocket flares, first aid kit, compass, spare batteries and AA adaptor for VHF (my gps and torch also take AAs), spare kill cord, an extra knife (there is one in the tool box). I try not to open this box - as of course you take stuff out and it doesn't get restocked. There should be a small "Bothy Bag" (KISU) in there too which is much more effective than a plastic survival bag in my experience - and has room for 2-3 people... ...but I 'borrowed it' for a trip on land months ago and forgot to put it back.

The tool box gets opened frequently. The clear boxes are quite good for finding small stuff at the bottom.

Apart from all your "blowy up boat stuff" that I don't need to carry - I don't bother with the fuel primer bulb or EAR mask, but I understand why you might want them (is it possible to use gravity to feed your engine - even if a bit awkwardly to get ashore?). Perhaps a smaller "Faceshield" rather than a full mask would be easier to pack? Resuscitation Face Shield Without Mouthpiece - Foil Wrapped - MS First

The one thing I don't carry but keep thinking I should is a spare prop and prop spanner. Probably with the spare prop on the transom like an RNLI D-class?

Do you have pre-mix or do you always top up the oil before you go out? The yamaha goes into limp home mode if it gets low on oil (it still has at least an hour left at that point) - so I carry spare oil and funnel (as well as spare fuel) which all takes up quite a bit of space.

Thanks for the pics Mart - that's an impressive list of stuff! Exactly how big is the SIB?

I presume that the stretcher is for carrying all the kit on?

I like the line thrower... I wonder could one be modified to deliver a more intimidating package?

I'm thinking about jetskis

One of the gearbox oil bottles with the extending snout spout would save you the need for two funnels perhaps?

The larger ones come into their own if you end up doing CPR for a prolonged periods, since there is no upper limit at which you stop being able to comfortably keep up the good work for a few minutes longer could make all the difference.

The plastic sheet type end up getting in the way before too long, whereas the larger version has elastic to go round the back of the casualty's head and they can also take a balloon and oxygen if available.

Not on a sib, but a useful space saver I guess-I keep a half litre coke bottle precharged with the right amount of oil for a tankful of premix. A drink bottle with the bottom cut off with a knife makes for a handy impromptu funnel as well-and I've always got a bottle of Lucozade onboard as it's a good boost if I'm getting fatigued in rough weather.

I also carry one of these waterproof tubes of these glucose tablets in my flare pack for the same reason. If someone throws up they get tired very fast on a totally empty stomach-even if they aren't feeling ill afterwards.

I have similar for the same reason, but mine are branded Royal Marine Commandos.

I did have some "not for civvies" Yorky bars, but some skate scoffed the lot!
