Aside from Boat related equipment (anchors ,Flares, towing lines,fenders, engine oil, hydraulic fluid, coolant for inboard diesel etc)
My personal equipment is:
Gerber serrated round tipped safety knife
Good quality LED torch
Drybag containing lots of extra clothing.
2 good size first aid kits
Large fire extinguisher
Permanent marker and waterproof paper
Comprehensive toolkit.

The advantage of a Pac 22 is that it has a lot of underdeck storage space, so lots of room to stash stuff

Gloves
I wouldn't be without a pair of water-proof or spray-proof gloves, especially for handling anchor lines and things.

Dry bag
I've missed mine since smashing the buckle by running over it with the boat on its trolley . Maybe not as useful on bigger RIBs with proper storage space...

The rest of my top five would probably overlap with others' lists: knife;
first aid kit; tools; PLB if I weren't always surrounded by dinghies and other safety boats; ropes of various sizes (for everything from improvised sunglasses straps and jury-rigging shackles to tow rope or anchor rope extensions).

And, of course, sandwiches and a flask of coffee!

Lots more than 5 but if I didn't have any of the 5 top ones I'd seriously consider setting off - that's why chinograph is in at 6!

Knife
HH VHF
Spare Kill cord
Sunglasses
Foul weather gear - you never know when it's going to turn
Chinograph pencil - console is great thing to jot things on
OK that's 6

What I'd call normal permanent kit:
Anchors,
warps & lines
Flares & gloves
1st aid kit
Fire extinguisher
Foghorn
Footpump
water / food
Sea anchor
boathook
paddles
Toolkit
Gaffer tape
handbearing compass
