equipping a

I just purchased an ''81 30'' Hunter, and am starting the task of making sure I have all the necessary and desirable accessories.

Some things are obvious and required by law (PFDs, etc), but I''d like to find a comprehensive checklist that I could use to guide me around the aisles at WestMarine. Can anyone direct me to a source for such a list? Or if you''d just like to let me have your own ultimate wish-list, that would help, too. <g>.

BTW, my plans are for no more than sailing around the bay on the weekends and some coastal cruising.

Look at the following. ORC Special Regulations take you through all the boat and personal safety requirements for racing. The interesting part is that the different levels of racing are defined and then the details of equipment required for each level are clearly given. The beauty of this - even if you never intend to race - is that you can pick the level that equates to the sailing you intend.
Every conceivable item is covered from fire extinguishers to soft wood plugs and from dayglo hull markings to storm sail sizes.

i think the orc regulations are a bit stiff just for cruising around the bay.
i would make sure you comply to coast guard regulations, have good charts,compass,and navigation stuff(parallels and dividers), a gps,a spare anchor and rode,a spotlight, and anything else that strikes your fancy while going up and down the aisles.
