Does that mean that a Clamshell kit won't cut the mustard?

Well I now carry an anchor and being able to moor up while going for a swim is great! So much easier than beaching and launching again. Cheers Guys

Here is the kit I carry in an orange Peli 1300 case.



  1. Clamseal
  2. Velco cable ties, and plastic cable ties
  3. Self Amalgamating tape
  4. Adjustable wrench
  5. Very sharp knife
  6. Loud whistle
  7. Spare spark plugs
  8. Red and orange hand held flares
  9. Personal distress flares
  10. Foil sleeping bag
  11. First aid kit
  12. Lighter
  13. Cigar, for when I know its all over! lol
  14. Compass, need to upgrade this as it cheap and nasty
  15. Waterproof and buoyant 1W LED divers torch
  16. iPhone 3GS with GPS apps and two sim cards, Orange & Vodafone
  17. Leatherman Multi-Tool
  18. Epoxy Seal
  19. Spare fuel bulb
  20. Box contains jubilee clips and electrical wire with crocodile clips on each end
  21. Selection of Duracell batteries
  22. Spare pull start cord
  23. Spare Kill Cord
Well thats the lot, I have one other item to put in there and thats a spare fuel fitting for my Tohatsu outboard.

Do you think I need anything else, or am I carrying too much in the first place? The box is not overly heavy so I am happy to carry this in the SIB.

VHF? (unless this is carried clipped to you as most would recommend) This for me is the one piece of equipment I would not go to sea without.

Other thing I guess is a pump - I don't carry a Clamshell or similar but if one is needed surely the affected tube would be empty?

Yes I have an ICOM IC-M35 which is both waterproof and buoyant. This is clipped to me.

The pump is always kept in the little bag which is attached to the seat.

One thing I am thinking of investing in is a PLB.

That kit looks reassuringly familiar

One point (if you'll excuse the pun) is that pig-sticker you have. Very nice knife, but if you have to deploy it in a SIB during a crisis...

I use an old flat tipped dive knife (Lidl's Finest) with a saw edge/sharp edge/line cutter. It will cope with everything but could be dropped in the SIB without causing untold misery.

Nice Peli BTW, I always wanted an orange one, but they were

What kind of performance are you getting from that rig?

Only about 40 quid and you can upgrade to orange for free

I'm trying to negotiate a Peli with a ex-mod electronics dealer I talked to at the War and Peace show - he had lots of sets of portable Army satellite phone things in the really big orange Peli cases. Phone things were about 250 with the Peli case at 50 on top, I think the Peli's were 200+ new originally.
