I'm adding a "plus one" to this suggestion.
Further, d/l the Cat. 1 and 2 requirements and study them. There's much good stuff there for anyone boating in open waters.
After all, the USCG list is really just a minimum and a starting point for equipping your boat for the conditions you may meet while out there.
