Ok relatively newbie question: well sort of .... been playing with lots of different boats, but only just re-acquired a SIB after number of years. Waterproof kit boxes? As really important stuff usually goes in individual small boxes or dry bags, and the main grab/kit box usually there to keep evening in order and together - why not something like Stanley Fat Max waterproof tool box - at 30 lot more cubic cms per than bigger Pelican cases. Despite being born in the south have lived in Yorkshire most of life and thus I might just have become culturally assimilated!

Well coincidentally Lee1 has raised the DeWalt/Stanley box thing in a thread not that long ago. To my mind if you go to sea you want to know you have kit proven for that environment. Those toolboxes are only rated to 10% of the pressure of a mains hose and I would be surprised if they were rated for salt water sea use.

For around the price I'd rather pick up a second hand Peli or one of the new Peli clones... or for my choice of 10+yrs three new dry bags which have never failed me.

Here's the thread... http://www.rib.net/forum/f50/a-good-...ion-78457.html

As Solveig very wisely says "It's your decision".

OMG - so many years later. This kit is still working (mostly) - here's what it's doing now:

Clockwise:

Tiny fender - for buoying a line, if required - lost at sea (still experiencing some "loss" issues )
BCD air cylinder - for tube top-ups - dumped
10m x 14mm rope - for general purpose tying off - chopped up and used for new willkcraft's fenders
15m x 8mm rope - for general close to shore anchoring - retained
75m x 6mm rope (cord?) - for when the sh1t hits the fan - retained - used recently to tow a 7m inboard pilothouse at 15kts - good string!
Cordura "sports" bag with reinforced base - still in use on SIB
2.5kg Bruce anchor with 4m x 6mm chain - still in use, used on SIB and also as a lunchhook for 2.75 ton willkcraft - good anchor!
Assorted bungees and "small stuff" (one made up as a killcord extension)- crab still on the willcraft killcord.
Bailer, sponge and cloth - Still on SIB
Flat tipped dive knife - has shackle slot, saw and plain edges, line cutter. Lives on willkcraft now as main knife, custom sheath on my jockey back.

OCD - at least when "they come for me", I'll be packed - oh yeah!

Time to give this post a prod as a year has passed since Willk's last update and I have time on my hands. To make it easier to see I'll divide the kit up into sections over a few posts. To be honest getting it out to photograph makes me wonder if I have a couple(!) of things too many.

When setting the boat up we add...

Pair small oars -these replaced the standard extending plastic paddles, loads better.
Trem 2m extending boathook - been more useful that you could ever think on a SIB
Garmin sounder/plotter setup - over the top for a SIB perhaps but a great bit of kit
Outboard lock - keeps insurance happy but rattles unless bungee'd
Spare kill cord
Baler and sponge
Bow and stern lines

2kg ish anchor, chain and 35m of 6mm rope attached.
15m extra 6mm rope
2 large inflatable beach rollers - Gurnard made me have these

Emergency outboard pull cord
Spare prop, nut, pin and tools to change - only carried in rocky areas
Pump and gauge - actually in its own bag
Tow bridle - set up to clip on to tow or be towed
Outboard standard toolkit
Waterproof box with... Clamseal, serrated knife, laminated insurance cert, spark plugs, cable ties, fuel line clips, shackles, fuses, electrical wire and connecters etc.

Then my buoyancy aid...

VHF
Pocket Garmin Etrex with full marine mapping - a superb bit of kit for its size
Locking knife - non-safety for shore use
In one pocket - laminated VHF emergency procedure reminder cards


And I think that's about it!

Here you firstly have to do training and qualify to get a boating licence. We also have to have a in basic kit onboard our recreational vessels ( comercial is more intensive. I add to this with a spare prop, plb, extra vhf handheld, electrical tester, spare towels and survival blankets etc. Due to our time in the water spearing among various sharks which become extremely agro once we spear fish we also carry extensive blood clotting and tourniquet kits. Almost forgot, spare hats and sun protection.

Nice update @Fenlander, I am just reviewing out kit bags prior to Scotland. You have prompted me to think about spare prop and am considering one of the Odeo jobbies as I don't carry flares for the local stuff I do down here.


Cheers,


MM

Interesting Jon. So I'd fail in Australia for an under rated buoyancy aid... no V-sheet... also not having pyro flares... but I'd exceed the kit requirements by having a VHF... now that last one did surprise me.

Yes less than 2nm you don't need a vhf, though I don't know anyone who doesn't have a radio personaly. Possibly because sea temps allow us far more time in the water than you would have in Scotland. We are extremely regulated with boat licenses, fishing licenses etc. When you consider how small our population is here and that we have over 250,000 regestered boat owners in our state alone and 2 million boat users, these rules have given us a pretty good safety record. Comercial vessel regulations step things up a fair amount more.https://maritimemanagement.transport...708-201617.pdf

I have an ancient one (well over 10 years old, possibly 12+) and agree totally, superb bit of kit that has got me out of the poo on more than one occasion - usually on someone else's boat!

Very highly recommended.
