The contents of my Peli (as pictured):-
  • Torch with LEDs
  • Floating serated knife with round tip
  • Ubiquitous flat/philips screw driver
  • Glow stick
  • Waterproof notepad and waterproof pencil
  • Bottles water
  • Energy sweets
  • First aid kit, with eye-wash capsules added
  • eTrex with charts
  • Sealed pack of fuel filter, small penknife, whistle & insulation tape
  • Sealed pack of AA batteries (my handheld VHF and the eTrex use them)
  • Foil blanket (next to useless but so small and light why not)
  • Sealed pack of flares
  • Starting cord
  • Sighting compass
  • Cable ties
  • Multimeter
  • Multitool & small adj. spanner
  • Resuscitation mask in a hard case

The sealed packs are heavy duty clear plastic, with a V cut in one end so that they can be opened with cold/gloved hands. We supply lots of safety kits with the items like this, especially first aid kits as it makes them tamper evident as well as floating and waterproof.

The resus mask should be sealed in a pack too, but I show it to customers on courses.

I also have a compact tool kit that goes with me if I think there is half a chance of needing something other than a pair of pliers. Might get a pic of that later on.

And a pic of the bits all in the Peli Case, still room over for some sarnies

Also pictured is a Grab Bag that we sell with some of the items in this thread included, priced at 39 pounds for the Viper Tacpack and contents (includes a complete first aid kit).

Nice box of tricks willk. And Channel RIBs too. I now have Pelicase envy, which can only be a retail opportunity.

I tend to carry a big Ortleib drybag with snacks, towels and dry clothes for the kids. Then in the bow bag I have an anchor with chain and warp, inshore flare kit, and my trailtoolz tool kit if I remember. I ought to have a few basic spares too, but haven't got round to it.

In the SIB I tend to wear my kayaking buoyancy aid with good pockets which take a handheld VHF and my iPhone in a dry case. It's got the Navionics chartplotter on it which is handy until the batteries run out. I'd like a Magellan toughcase but I'm not prepared to pay for one at the moment!

Thanks to the input here I have revisited the Pelicase and managed (without removing anything) to add a PVC survival bag, some wire and electrical connectors and a diver's slate and attached pencil. Just the couple of tools to go and I'm done.

Malt, mmmmmmm!

It's odd you should mention that. I have a pair of 50cl plastic minis that I use for hiking. That's 4 UK shots or 3 Irish ones. Maybe I should squeeze 'em in there somewhere. I will confess that I taped a 20 note to the inside of the box, in case I get washed up on a distant bar with no wallet....

Maybe if you do that you will be like the proverbial 'boy' scout and be prepare for all events, mind you 20 euros will not get you many drams!!

Thats a bit harsh, I know his sense of humour is a tad "unique" at times, but he hardly deserves condemning to the depths with a weighted buoyancy aid!

Anyway, the Pelicase is full and I think I need to add a tiny adjustable spanner and a screwdriver or two. Any (useful) thoughts?
Just hope that Boat Mad guys done look at this thread they already have enough ammunition to refer to us all as wanabee Bear Gryllsisis (sp)

The big cylinder is for initial inflation onshore - it looks a bit Heath Robinson but actually inflates up to the 11psi max without leaks. It means that I can fill the boat without hunching over or moving the kit about too much. The fact that it cost me exactly nothing was a big plus It will fill the boat to working pressure about four times.

The little one is the onboard kit and connects to the gauge and adaptor carried in the Pelicase. It holds about 90 litres and it's fine for topping off the tubes or airdeck if required. In the event of a total deflation, I would need to blow the section like a balloon before adding the final pressure. That's a 0.4L cylinder and the associated fitting is from an old BCD.

TBH, if the boat was bigger and had a hard deck, I'd just pack a pump....

Very good

Although I'm keeping mine inflated, I lose quite a bit of air through the prv's when sat on the trailer in 30 degrees, it is very black after all.

What with the main tubes, speed tubes and keel there's a fair bit of pumping to do after every launch. I was thinking a small bottle with a reg and adaptor/gauge as per the recent thread just for topping up.

I might even keep an eye out for a fast inflation kit since I've got all the proper valves for it. I'm guessing then that a small pony bottle would keep her topped up for a good while
