Re: Boat delivery list

With any kind of good luck, you'll never need any of this, so once you make up what you want of it, you're set. This is the 'plan for the worst, hope for the best' list. ....or, 'paranoia is cheap' list.

Don't know how frequently through-hull punctures happen up there, but with all the rivers & floods there's bound to be some bad junk in the water:

Set of various-diameter tapered wooden plugs to drive into a hole in the hull, with heavy mallet for driving them. Fitted plug on lanyard next to each through-hull.

Set of plywood squares, maybe up to 1/4 sheet, with nails started on the edges, with hammer.

Fothering gear: canvas, rope & goop to cover a hole from the outside.

High-volume manual bilge pump.

Selvagee & handy-billy in case a stay or shroud lets go.

It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."
