Some of the larger Tesco supemarkets sell them, as do army/navy stores and some camping suppliers.

Personally I prefer these to the add water or crack the packet in half versions, they often seem quite oily and leave a greasy taste - I've used quite a few diferent types at work and play over the last few years.

a couple of solderless end cable nipples for the carb throttle and a couple of odd short lengths of copper tubing so that i can sleave any rubber hoses that might split ,brake pipe size stuff ,..and a small hacksaw blade ,some various size nuts and bolts with large washers ok for making emergency repairs on holes also one of those small 35mm camera film containers with some waterproof grease in it ,a few odd size self tapping screws ,some clean dry rag in a plaggy bag ,and a couple of those sachet hand wipes that a certain fast food takeaway give out ,.and a small sheet of paper of the exloded view of the carb should it ever need to be stripped at sea and we find we have a part left over when fitting it back, i also file a small nick on the prop hub so if i get any fishing line around it it cuts it before it gets wrapped around the shaft ,regards mart.

You have to understand I like to be prepared.

My vast array of spares doesn't take up much space, although I obviously also carry a flare pack, pump and boat hook.
The spare prop being plastic is just over 2kgs and the box of tools and spares only 5.2Kgs.
My console however is the size of a small outside lav!

Like Pete7 I also have a small box that goes in the car when the trailer is on the back, which includes a full set of bearings and all the drifts etc I need to change them, plus two spare rollers, large washers and split pins.
