Recommended and essential gear?

Does anyone have a good link to a list of essential and recommended gear for a typical 30' weekender? I'd like lists broken down (if available) into categories such as deck hardware, electronics, safety equipment, galley, head, etc.

I'd like to take the lists and research typical prices for replacement items so I can better assess how good a "deal" some project boats might be that I'm looking at.

I realize that the lists will vary greatly by boat model and size, but I'm only looking for a starting point for now and a more generalized list would be suitable at this stage.

Hull, sails (mainsail, genoa is optional), mast, rudder, tiller, sheets. That's about all you need.

Does this do you any good? Look at the “jobs to do” and the “spare parts” tabs for thoughts.

labatt, you forgot the keel/leaderboard. He'll probably want one of those if he's doing anything other than sailing windward.

Hmm...

Safety Gear:

PFDs for each person aboard—preferably with strobe, whistle and retroreflective patches
Type IV throwable PFD
LifeSling2 optional but highly recommended
Flares, four handheld red, four handheld white, four parachute red, preferably SOLAS rated.
Horn—preferably two, one mouth powered, one compressed air powered—I like the EcoHorn which uses compressed air and is re-fillable with an ordinary bicycle pump
Safety Harnesses for each person, particularly if singlehanding at all
Safety Tethers for each person, particularly if singlehanding at all
Jacklines
Navigation lights, deck level
Masthead Tricolor, optional, but recommended for offshore use
Anchor light
Radar Reflector
Fire Extinguishers, at least two Type I, but preferably three Type II

Deck Gear:

Windlass,
bow chocks,
cleats,
bow roller,
stanchions and lifelines,
docklines with chafe protection,
fenders,

Electronics:

VHF radio
GPS chartplotter
Backup GPS unit, handheld with spare batteries preferably
RADAR, if operating in areas with prevalent fog, like Maine

Galley:

Nesting pots
Stove
Pressure Cooker
Cooler, Ice Box or refrigerator

Head:

Towels
Toilet Paper in waterproof holder
Soap
Shampoo
Solar Shower, if no hot pressure water on boat

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.

Weekender right? Party of 4? fficeffice" />>>
60 lbs of ice minimum (it melts fast as much as you open the cooler)>>
(3) 18 packs of Corona>>
(2) Limes>>
(2) 750 ML of good gold tequila>>
(4) Quart size Cuervo margarita mix (2 parts mix and 1 part liquor is the best ratio)>>
(1) Salt rimmer with the little hat lid>>
(1) 750 ML of Grand Mariner (you are on the boat and want nothing but top shelf margaritas or generic substitute since you spend all the money on the boat. There a re a couple good ones out there)>>
Several bags of chips and dips (seven layer bean is my must have)>>
Oh. And if the wife is going some salad stuff so you can say you ate something green>>
That should do it. And since you are not leaving the dock because you certainly can't actually get behind the wheel or tiller in the shape you will be in be sure to carry the phone number of the local pizza place that delivers to the dock in case someone thinks you need a little more than chips and dip to eat.
Make sure you keep the plastic grocery bags. they work real neet to catch the barf if you just put the handle around your ears.

You can put all this and 4 people on a 27 foot boat? And after everything is said and done you forgot the rum.
