my boat is a floating hardware store as i know the feeling of getting stuck in a storm and make sure im always prepared for anything.
theres nothing like having the right tool for the job if you get in a jam.i built a compartment in my quarter berth dedicated to safely storing tools for whatever pops up.
plus
-electric trolling motor.
-booster pack
-winch spare parts
-impellar
-fuel line,seacock tubing,clamps
-t-stat
-engine oil
-lock tite
-spark plugs,wires,coil,points,condensor,fuel filter/water seperator
-sealants,rigging/electrical,butle tape
-fuel
-doubles of all safety gear
-headgasket rebuild kit
-ropes,blocks,cleats,roll of cable with clamping tool and fittings,bungees
-electrical-tape,wiring,butt connectors,butane soldering kit(doubles as a torch),bulbs,fuses,dvom.
-snorkel/goggles (which i pray i never use)
-back up tiller
-2 50000 candle light power flashlights
-hardware toolbox-nuts/bolts/washers/turnbuckles,cotter pins,dowel pins
-cable cutters
-assortment of shore power converters
-most importantly a spare bottle of jack daniels for liquid confidence just in case all else fails
sd-its funny that you mentioned shear pins as 2 years ago on my 24 footer a spare would have saved me a tow-back.

I didn't include tools in my list, since tools aboard have been covered in previous threads. I also didn't include generic parts, like nuts, bolts, screws, clevis pins, and such.

I do have a backup tiller.

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.

Post Why I have had to raise the water line...

  • All Engine belts (3 types, two for water pump)
  • Most engine hoses
  • Impellers & Gaskets (1 new, two old but still good)
  • Fuel Filters: Engine & Racor (2 of ea.)
  • Oil Filters (2 ea. & Oil)
  • Thermostat (1 new, 1 old but working)
  • Spare 2 bladed prop (the original)
  • Old Stuffing box & necessary packing (converted to drip-less this year)
  • Yards of lines & sheets
  • Multitude of blocks and rigging hardware
  • Pins for outboard prop
  • Variety of fuses from 1 amp to 20 amp?
  • Various light bulbs, for sure running lights
  • Electrical connectors, shrink tube, & wire
  • Fresh water pump kit (potable water, not engine)
  • Head Kit
  • Emergency Jump Start thing, does that count?
Thats all I can think off right now, these days I find myself starting to remove more than keeping it all on board.

Cheers,
Shawn

In addition to the usual stuff most carry...we also carry a spare alternator and complete major parts engine kit.
The list is simply too long for everything else...but essentially we have backups or repair kits for most everything...standing and running rigging, navigation aids, pumps and motors, fluids, and all the tools and parts needed to fix stuff that breaks. When in more remote ports, may not have the skills to fix something yourself...but if you have the part...you usually can find someone who can do the job.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

On top of a lot of the above, I keep aboard most of the items I've replaced or upgraded, like blocks, line, electronics, etc.

I'm feeling a bit 'small'; are all you guys going offshore from New England to the Carib, or constantly prepared to do so?? Spare pumps, alternaters, motors, engine rebuild kits, extra tiller, etc???? Wow.

If I was going to Bermuda, I would increase the inventory, but for every day, I carry a spare main and genoa - the originals (after all it is a sailboat ), a basic tool bag, fuel filter, raw water impeller, and engine belts, some misc hardware - clamps, pins, blocks, line, etc. Except the safety related gear, water hose, and electrical cord, that is it. Why would I want all that inventory for everyday?
