Now I have my proper drysuit, I'm going to fall in the water as often as I can.

When we meet up will show the art of get up on the RIB on the ladder . Actually you need the right length of rope and the right angles on the ladder.
However, for safety reasons I do excatly what you do climping up by using the engine's cav plate as a step!!! HEHEHE
I can jump on from the sides when I didn't have much to eat too (no bacn sandwiches for me please I'm on a diet!!) LOLOL

Crikey, Manos - you're certainly well equipped! - careful how you read that

OK - I'm going to risk being a bit boring here, but bear with me for a minute. I've got a couple of excel spreadsheets with different scenarios for kit lists (helps me stop dithering about "oh, shall I take such and such just in case...") so I can get packed up quickly and out of the house.

So, here's the list I use for chartering a RIB, which assumes a certain level of equipment already on the RIB (anchors, fire extinguishers, etc) but also a certain level of distrust of the incumbent kit.

Wellies & Waterproofs - or - Drysuit
Life jacket
Re-arm kit for above
h/h GPS
h/h VHF & waterproof case
mobile 'phone & waterproof case
Sunglesses
Hat
Geko helmet
Lanyards for everything (Didn't have one on my swiss army knife, which could have ended up at the bottom of St Malo marina
- except that Charles saved it
Chart(s)
Almanac page copies (use the colour copier at work )
Tide and current info (as above)
Plastic zipper pouch for above
Passage plan, waypoint list
notebook
pen&pencil
extra fleece
flares
sun tan lotion
food/drink/chocolate/fruit
spare shoes&socks
gloves
wet wipes
AA batteries
camera
key float
inhaler (read personal medication here)
certificates (for charter co.)
wallett
anadin
stugeron
2x short warps (handy if single handed as you can get in a bit of a tangle with long warps)
velcro wraps (ex- cable management from a Compaq server!)
bungee
towel
spare engine lanyard

Hi Everybody,

My thanks to all of you who repled, this gives me an ideal kit for all my ventures. Brian as for the invitation to meet up at Plymouth in May I have decided to trail the boat down and I look forward to meeting as many fellow ribsters as possible (names to faces ect.).

I do not think there is anything else to add to this thread other than wishing everyone:-

A Very Merry(Hic! opps started already) & Happy New Year.

Safe Ribbing Everyone.
