    There was a thread today about what to have on your boat other than poles and bait. Well heres a couple of pics to show ya what I have on mine. I use a couple of them rubbermaid tubs to store it all in. Here we go.

    3 PFD jackets
    2 sets of rain gear
    1 roll trash bags
    1 complete spare fuel line assembly
    2 rolls of wire (red and black)
    Asst. electrical connectors,fuses and fuse holder
    4 spark plugs
    Asst. hose clamps
    1 bag of rags
    1 fire extiguisher(stored away from the motor and fuel tank)
    1 complete first aid kit
    1 holder for knives,scissors etc. mounted on the side
    1 usefull tool kit, makein sure ya got a spark plug socket.
    2 rolls teflon and black electrical tape
    6 boat plugs. Why I don't know. LOL!
    2 oars (not shown)
    That just about covers it for me. Its not gospel or the final word. Its just what I feel comfortable with. I also carry SEA TOW on the boat. Its like AAA for the water.

    Heres the pics.

    I just figured George wanted the rags to wipe his hands after changing the spark plugs.
    I need to quit figuring.

    Something I dont leave without is a boost box. Those things are life saver. mine has multi accessory ports for plugging in spotlights , cell phones etc. And of course you can boost your engine. Mine has 800 cranking amps. It sat for a year unused and off the charger. Boosted the tractor and truck with it and it still had power. those things are nice around home and the boat. They make jumper cables obsolete.
