I need to buy some 2 horse shoe's, that i will attach to a frame, and about to attach solas reflective tape to to few key spots. Looking at active X reflector or AIS TRANSCEIVER.

Prob. missed a few, few items i carry since i usually get called to help out a club dinghy or help out in club events.

To be honest i think it totally depends on what your doing, thre's a big difference between going out for a quick trip or vanishing off into remote areas. Basics should be VHF and possibly a back up, these days a mobile phone is useful. Ropes and warps, spare propeller, spark plugs and a basic toolkit along with a first aid kit should be mandatory along with personal lifejackets. Chartplotter is useful along with charts (along with an ability to use them).

I personally don't feel the need to go out with most of the local chandlery on board.
