Revisiting offshore boat gear "needs" to rig...
So, WE WILL be back to the coast. Let's revisit the post about boat gear. Here's the list from the old post? Anything to add??
Kind of a rehash, but figured it would make for some good conversation and consideration. So the boat is ready for the water but is a "blank slate". What are must haves? This is considering:
1.The boat is 19' with minimal storage
2. main use is fishing, with some diving
3. Most trips will be inside 30 miles 1 way
This can fall into several categories.
Here's a few off the top of my head:
Ditch bag (handheld GPS and VHF, Reflector, whistle, vertical "hot dog", rope)
Small first aid kit
Life jackets(6) and throw cushion
Wreck anchor/300' rope plus chain
Spare livewell/fish box plugs
kill switch lanyard
This was off the top of my head. What ya got?
