Back up VHF in the shape of a shiny new Icom M73 Euro, and a sponge on a bungee, which I initially thought was soap on a rope!

Getting a new fuel tank from the wife but have to order it myself as she could find a boat fuel tank shop. And I got a Velcro wrist strap for the kill cord from my 13 year old daughter. Clearly she put more effort in as she found the kill cord shop ok ha ha .

Either around your leg or clipped on to the LJ,

Not this old chestnut again. Lots of people have been happily using a killcord on my wrist for years and there's no reason to get it trapped assuming you feed the steering wheel when turning rather than hand over hand if you drive like Starsky and Hutch.

Its a fair point but I just think that on the whole your hands are far more active than the belt or foot.

How do you feed the steering wheel - when using one hand throttle and one hand wheel?

My Brother got me a water proof container for carrying flares. I now need to work out the best place to store it on the Rib.

I also must be getting a pass for a few overnights on the Rib from the wife, as my In Law's got me a wash bag that is the same make as my Ribbing gear, so obviously they have all to be used around the same time.
