    Default Onboard Emergency Tool Kit

    I carry a emergency first aid kit on the boat but never really thought about emergency tool kit. I saw someone on here posted that they carry a pair of water goggles, which is a great idea I never thought of. What are some other tools you carry onboard incase of an emergency?

    Default Onboard Emergency Tool Kit

    I now carry the following, and am always adding to it:
    Diving mask
    Diving knife
    Full set of allen wrenches
    Both most common size phillips & flat head screw drivers (whatever that size is)
    A kit that has a set of small phillips & flat head screw drivers (for working on the audio)
    A 5/16 nut driver
    A socket wrench with assorted sockets
    Spare impeller (no matter what Doc says)
    A spare quart of oil & transmission fluid
    Long funnel & small funnel
    And probably a few other things I can't think of

    Default Onboard Emergency Tool Kit

    I think I'll add some needle nose pliers this week also. If the impeller does blow, I'll need a way to get it out.

    This weekend alone I used some allen wrenches, some of the screw drivers (large and small), the funnel and oil. Had it not been for the oil, my Saturday trip would've been cut short.

    Harbor Freight 130 piece tool kit:
    http://www.harborfreight.com/130-pie...ase-68998.html



    A few splices, fuses, wire stripper/crimper.

    New Impeller

    Two spare engine belts (one for the water pump and the other for the alternator)

    12v spotlight that plugs into the lighter

    Electrical tape

    Teflon tape

    Dive Goggles, Snorkel, Floating knife

    Mini Leatherman

    Bag of Zip Ties

    Extra skier down flag

    Jumper Cables

    Air Horn, Whistle

    ANCHOR. (if you're boating somewhere and break down, this could keep you from smashing into something)

    And since I use ballast bags, I have two pumps because I've seen a friend donate a new pump to the bottom of the river.

    I have misc fly high ballast bag fittings with me. Need to add some hose clamps to the spare item bag.

    Bottle of mineral oil (because the seal on the base of my in hull depth transducer was leaking a little. But I've since fixed that and I think I'm good now).

    Extra dock and anchor line.

    Latex Gloves


    *Note, I drive a 1992 Supra Sunsport and have found that sh** breaks on my 22 year old boat!

    Hmmm. Extra fuses seems like a real good idea.

    I have a few various sized corks too - both cork and rubber.

    Call me crazy but if I somehow sheared off a ballast pump, have a "whatever" leak below the water line, or lost the transom plug that would be no bueno...
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    not crazy. I had a thru hull that I was using for a vent line for one of my bags. I ended up going a different direction and don't use that vent line anymore. So to "plug" the thru hull (up by my rub rail) I took a couple inches of ballast hose and shoved a wine cork in it and put a hose clamp on it.


    Did you know that a wine cork is PERFECTLY sized for the wakemakers 3/4" ballast hose????

    Why yes, as a matter of fact... A Merlot fits quite nicely.
