    I would suggest reading up on the laws in your state (and any state that you boat in) as some have different rules. For instance I just discovered last year that IL requires you to carry a whistle that can be heard for at least 1/2 mile. I'm not sure if its required in all states, but many require a throwable flotation device SEPARATE from the individual PFDs needed for each person on the boat.

    Other than the laws and what others have mentioned, the only thing I would add is a fire extinguisher.

    Read through this and I think everything was covered except emergency tape, bailing wire (don't laugh, it saved my week of vacation on the lake once) and a flashlight. I have a big LED mag light as well as a compact one for climbing into tight spaces.

    I like boat!

    I carry a all in one tool kit in my boat that has wrenches, socket set, pliers, screwdrivers, etc. It is all in one self contained kit and it has come in handy for me and other boats many times.

    Sure I'll take it bro.

    Laws Schmaws!

    Just find a big river, crank up the tunes, crack open a few cold ones, and let 'er rip through a few tight, crowded areas.

    Before you know it these guys will catch up with you and tell you EXACTLY what you're missing.

    Whenever I see one of those guys that close-up the same question comes to mind -- and I just have to find out the answer:


    "I wonder if he can really swim???"

    Holy crap -- you get a bunch of drug runners and pirates in your area? I think all that guy is missing is a rocket launcher and a few grennades!!!
