What items would YOU take cruising??
First, you need to answer some questions. Will your cruising be out of sight of land (i.e., night passages)? If so you''ll absolutely need jacklines and a gimballed stove so you can cook while heeled.
In the area of spare parts, at the very least I''d want a water pump impeller, a fan belt or two, some hose clamps and a length of spare hose, a good small flashlight, plenty of spare line, foulies boots and hats for everyone aboard - there''s more but I''m too busy at the moment (taking a break from what I should be doing) to be exhaustive. This, in addition of course, to the USCG required items which I''m sure I don''t need to list. Oh yeah, and what Sasha said.
