Dam good idea . I was just thinking the same reading this thread .
My new etec doesn't have the usual fuel conector so its not possible to just unplug the line .

I imagine a fire under the cover on the motor first thing to do really is isolate the fuel line. The thought of lifting the cover off and then fighting a fire isn't something i would like to tackle . Chances are i would jump in the oggin and let the insurance deal with it .

The diffinitive list :
- fire extinguisher
- flares
- a lifejacket per person onboard
- chart (can't find French waterproof charts)
- compass
- fog horn
- a waterproof torche
- anchor, chain & rope
- tow/throw rope
- first aid kit including thermal/foil blanket
- screw driver, spark plug spanner, adjustable spanner, knife, pliers, multitool
- spare spark plugs
- spare fuses
- watch & mobile phone
- spare batteries for my portable GPS
- spare pull cord
- spare kill cord
- duck tape & tie wraps
- paddles
- bailler / bucket
- spare prop & spanner
- inflation pump
- a floating self righting flash light
- Almanac
- Navigation Protractor
- puncture repair system

Removed elements :
- a horseshoe float
- mirror

Thanks for your help everybody. I hope this list can help others.

Now, can I have some sugestions as to where I put it all bearing in mind that I have two fuel tanks and a battery in my console?

My paddles split into three pieces, I think they'll go in with the fuel tanks. Flares, tools, spark plugs, fuses, and first aid kit may all go into the seat.
I've seen the RNLI put a spare prop on the transom on the outside but I don't know how the fix them there. I'm hoping the inflation pump will be able to join the paddles with the fuel.
Where would you put the fire extincter, the fog horn, the torch and the floating self righting flash light?
I'm hoping the charts, almanac & navigation tools will fit in the console with the battery.

A mirror is a good thing to carry but there is an excellent substitute - a nice shiny CD - it even has a hole in the middle to help you aim!!!

Do you not have a space under your seat (dose the black padded part not lift) this is where my fire-ex is ? other wise a few of these are handy http://www.seamarknunn.com/catalog/items/item1354.htm

not very quick to get into mind you so see if that seat has a sapace under it?

They seem rather pricey, have a look at the "marine storage" page here....

those waterproof orange "tool cases" look pretty handy (and a sensible price). Anyone here tried them?

Thanks for posting that link.
I fancy one of the big blue barrels for dumping all my gear in, just never been able to find anyone who will supply them.

Has anyone else used one and if so any thoughts on securing them into the boat. i was thinking of putting them behind the jockey seat and then some sort of ratchet strap securing it.

Regarding the smaller bottles i saw these on ebay.

I use a couple of these, 8 gallon size. Very heavy duty, easy to carry and strap down.

RIBase
I'd put the extinguisher and fog horn onto mounts on the outside of the console so they can be used in a hurry. I'd mount the paddles to the inside of the tubes with straps-again so you can get to them in a hurry.

I used to have some of those blue barrels for use in a canoe . They float and are tough but I found them a pain to use ,
The lid has a metal securing band which is fiddly if you just want to get something out quick .
They are ok sitteng between the gunwhales in a canoe but being round want to roll about on a bigger boat. and they don't stack
fitting stuff into a round shape isn't always easy and not the best use of space.
I prefer big dry bags
Don't put food in them the plasic taints eveything
