List of gear needed for a long journey.

Going from Lymington to Norway, I need a good starting - list of eveything I need for the journey. Is there anyone who knows where to find one?

Some things

This is some things that i can recomend after doing some long trips.
EPIRB (good if boat sinks)
GPS (you allready have your Simrad, but for best safety and extar one)
Drifting anchor
Rockets and flares
Extra fuses for all electronics
Extra battery (one can brake easaly in ruff weather)
VHF (not hand VHF)
Good clothing (something like thermic floating suits and a 150N lifevest) give me a call, i can help you with this and offcourse good clothing under the suit, fleace is allways good, not lusekofta, takes a long time to dry
First aid (even stronger stuff lik,e morfin if you will have a serious ingury)
Radar reflector
Radar (not very important but you can never can calculate weather)
Repair kit for tubes etc
Extra lamps for navigation lights
Tools for all kinds of problems
Spark plugs
Fuel filter
Prop (cheap one, aluminum)
More fuel and oil that you have been calculating on
Simple cables if you will have an electric problem
Dont know what you call it in norweigan but in
swedish "buntband" i think you call it strips in Norweigan
A good sence of humor and a happy mood
Anchor with chain
Ropes more than you need in harbour
Bucket to shit in if you dont want a cold ass
Dextrosol, chocolate, coffe, jägermeister instead of water, ha ha + food
12 volt socket for cell
Handlight (strong one that you can use in the 12 volt socket)
Some luck
Good navigation scills
BRAIN, dont pusch your self and the boat over the edge, you have a goal to come to and someone is waiting for you at home, it`s not racing you are doing it`s a funny and demanding trip
I am leaving Zeebrugge in begining of februari with my new Osprey Falcon, heading Stockholm.
I have been doing the trip before and the things i have been writing down is some of my equipment i had that i can remember, don`t have the list infront of me.
I will probably remember some other things later on, give me a call if you have any questions, you have my number.
