If you've got a missus, I suspect she'd kill you for saying that!

Just in case you were deadly serious Waver!!! Zebedee is a tiddler and open to the sun moon & stars...

So bare minimum for a scoot would be...Boat Key...kill cord/spare..
Fuel....Radio...ropes...fenders....chart/GPS...lifejackets...flares...fire extinguisher...nav lights (tied on )...foghorn/torch...& suitable gear...toolbox...anchor..oil if it's a 2 stroke

Also handy mobile phone, credit card!!!water, chocolate, spare clothes, drybags.

Mr. & Mrs. N have a comprehensive list of stuff on their Blue Ice website...I'll try to find the link...

http://www.blue-ice.me.uk/

Well done!!!! I was mainly thinking of stuff for the boat and Waver doesn't have a lot of feeling left in his limbs so even if something fell off his person I doubt he'd even notice...

Missus

In that case add to the list

One first aid kit for Waver containing

Walter Trout CDs
CD Player with new batteries
Large bottle of Cider
Binder twine for his trews

Offshore Certificate of Incompetance
3 weeks tuition with Paul Glatzel
Radar refector
Mirror
Big Torch
Little Torch incase the big one stops working
Knife
Even Bigger Knife
Fecking Big Knife
Plasters, those knives are very sharp!!!!
Sea sickness tablets
Life jackets + 10 spare just incase
Life Raft
Anchor and 1000 metres of chain, 4000 metres of rope
Foghorn
Fixed VHF
Portable VHF
VHF Licence. (can be omitted if you have the fecking big knife)
Kendal Mint Cake
Supplies of Fresh Water
Waterproofs
Drysuit
Yellow Wellies
Green Wellies for Wavenobber!
GPS
Plotter
Spare GPS
Spare Plotter
Depth Sounder
Long rope with weight on end incase of depth sounder failure
Fuel Flow meter
Change of Clothing
Chocolate
More Chocolate
Even More Chocolate in case of women on board
Charts, loads & loads of Charts
Almanac
5 hp outboard
Toolkit
Toolbox
Bench
Vise
Parts Washer
Hydraulic Press
Aqualung
Stab Jacket
Mask
Fins
Snorkel (might get rope round prop so you ought to have knife as well)

That'is probably the minimum that you should have onboard, unless you are considering leaving Southampton Water and venturing into the Solent.

Oy TD you forgot to mention that ribsters should carry a towrope for when they see a broken down red boat

by the way I am sure you don't need to carry any knife as your tounge is sharp enuff to cut through most substances, oh dear , now if only your wit was as keen
