Rainsuit, Snorkling gear, wetsuit, PFDs (1 per person), whistle (attached to PFD)
Sunscreen, sunglasses+ leash
Rod and reel, castnet, filet knife, wetstone, cutting board {small marabou jigs are very effective, simple to pack}
Sleeping bags in waterproof bags
Mess kit, Tupperware/ziplock for leftovers
First aid kit
Hat+ leash
Sandals, topsiders, wetsuit booties,
Toolkit, dive knife, work or sailing gloves
VHF/GPS, 2 sets of extra batteries per unit
Boombox with spare batteries
Throwable PDF **I hope you mean PFDs, PDFs aren't very useful without a computer. :P}
2 extra pdf
Boarding ladder
2 ice chests full of ice, one for food one for fish
Flounder gig, light 2 extra sets of batteries
Lighters, dryer lint(used to start fires), fire starters
Camera {extra batteries, film or memory cards
Rags/Paper towel {highly recommend getting a microfiber towel, dry you quickly and dry off fast}
clothes in waterproof bags, extra insulating layer(s)
flares
harnesses and something to use to attach to the boat
iodine tablets (disinfect water before drinking)
strobe light for PFD+ spare batteries
hand sanitizer (alcohol based)
paddles
waterproof flashlight(s) and spare batteries
compass
cell phone and waterproof bag + moisture absorbing gel {highly recommend getting an emergency charger that runs off AA batteries and packing extra AA batts, try and get most of the equipment to use the same type of batteries to reduce the number and types you have to carry}
pillows {instead of a pillow, carry some small fleece blankets stuffed into a pillow case. They work well as pillows and will keep a person warm even when wet and dry quickly}
watch
epoxy stick (emergency boat repairs)
To Buy

Trailer Ball
Bugspray
200ft extra line
Camp stove, extra fuel
Gas for outboard
Anchor light to run up halyard and 2 sets of spare batteries

trash bags
bucket (use to put out fires)
Rations

Fish Fry
24 Hotdogs/Buns
Pringles
Ketchup, mustard, salt, pepper
Canned soup/Raveoli {don't forget a can opener and utensils}

granola bars and other ready to eat food (cereal, crackers, summer sausage)
Water bottles (Nalgene or similar)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

bljones has a spectacular aura about bljones has a spectacular aura about
SD, depending upon the content and throwability of the PDFs, there may be a good explanation for the heavy TP consumption.

Although, instead of PDFs, why not just bring a netbook with the porn bookmarked?

leland: Have fun kid. You are waaaaayyyy more prepared than any 15 year old should be. Good for you. Who's going with you?

Good suggestions guys, I like the down blanket idea, and the sunglasses/hat.
I have a fisherman friend who is learning how to sail come with me, he has good survival instincts and we both entertain each other. He can keep us a steady supply of fresh fish.
I'm heading to the islands for 2 nights, 3 days, and will be planning longer sails as work/school allows.

Takes money to do it, but when you have the money you just don't have the time xD

Damn, 3 days in the keys... all you need is beer & a bathing suit, a couple of tee shirts and some cash for more beer.




Impressive provisioning list, looking forward to your application to the USCG Academy!

Most importantly, have fun!

No DOWN blankets. Down is a horrible material to use on a boat..if it gets wet it takes forever to dry. FLEECE is what you should be using.

He's got a point. Just ask any goose how critical it is for them to stay dry.
