Max... the big ones tend to go quite cheaply on Fleabay, they're often badly listed, check for Peli Case, Pelican Case etc. 50 is good though!

Don't throw your money away on Channel Ribs - he'll only waste it on food.

Been searching but the big orange ones are hard to find and most much smaller black Pelis' seem to go for 80+?!

New Pelicases with lifetime guarantee

Just a small part of the range, we can get them all at the best prices.

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

What kind of performance are you getting from that rig?
Yes, I see what you mean with the knife, I have just purchased a Lomo Compact BC Knife to replace it with. Thanks for the tip, pun intended!

I paid 60 for the case to include delivery.

The boat is quick, gets on the plane very easily, not so sure of the top speed as yet as I am pretty new to all of this so I am taking it easy until my confidence grows.

Ground Tackle bag

As mentioned, I keep the anchor and warps in a small cordura bag, clipped to the safety lines in the bow of the SIB.

Clockwise:

Tiny fender - for buoying a line, if required
BCD air cylinder - for tube top-ups
10m x 14mm rope - for general purpose tying off
15m x 8mm rope - for general close to shore anchoring
75m x 6mm rope (cord?) - for when the sh1t hits the fan
Cordura "sports" bag with reinforced base
2.5kg Bruce anchor with 4m x 6mm chain
Assorted bungees and "small stuff" (one made up as a killcord extension)
Bailer, sponge and cloth
Flat tipped dive knife - has shackle slot, saw and plain edges, line cutter.

OCD - at least when "they come for me", I'll be packed

When I took this rounded knife with me I did not expect to use it:
Firefighter Rescue Knife - Product Reviews and Prices - Shopping.com
But this summer I had my propeller messed with illegal nets (fishing is not allowed in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park) and I had to use it. It worked fast and easy. And 100% SIB proof.

Swimming goggles is also a good idea. Well, I know that in British seas the water is colder than in Mediterranean...but I think it's the worth (i.e. checking the anchor). Also, they can be very useful in emergencies as you can swim much better with goggles.

No, you cannot take them if there's a mobile phone on board. A few seconds and you're in the Internet for a life!
