Required Safety Gear

I was over at Lake Superior Sailors place and he was showing me how he had outfitted his boat ( lotta neat ideas- thanks) and were going thru all the "bells, whistles and horns" as well as MOB stuff fire extinguishers and PFDs, placards etc...

I didn't memorize it all, so was wondering if there is a list or link to the USCG "required" gear ( the stuff they would look for if you were boarded/inspected) and maybe lists of "really nice to have" stuff as well as "necessary but not required" stuff...

I have a 26' Paceship and have stripped 'er bare (gear wise) in the inside so starting from scratch...

Mostly want to know what is "mandatory" so I don't miss anything, but also interested in what you think is neccessary for basic safety/comfort before we get into the "nice to have" frilly stuff
