What do you have in your Grab Bag

So what do you carry in the event of having to leap from your burning rib

I guess :

Handheld VHF
Mars Bars
Water
Personal flares
Picture of codprawn

Corkscrew

Seriously though, torch with spare batteries and bulb, thermal blankets, first aid kit, signalling mirror, flares, glow sticks. I don't actually have grab bags - both of my RIBs have life rafts which contain all of this stuff.

I'm with you on the bag - that's a no-brainer. You'll have to tell me what the matches are for though?

I've usually got some of the above in said bag, also always carry a diving mask, just in case I need to stick my head under the boat for some reason
