What Spare Parts Do You Carry Aboard Your Boat??
I was just curious to see what spare parts you carry aboard your boat.
I have spare line, my old backstay and backstay adjuster, and a few other rigging items.
I also have:
a spare prop for my dinghy motor,
extra prop blades for the bigger auxiliary outboard,
spare oil filters for both engines,
spare fuel/water separation filters for the bigger engine,
new spark plugs for both outboards,
extra shear pins for the dinghy motor,
spare impellers for both outboards,
spare fuses (mostly ATC blade fuses),
spare bulbs for the deck-level nav lights that haven't been upgraded to LED,
a head re-build kit,
a spare 15 Amp circuit breaker,
nothing.....I have a spare key hiden inside..does that count?
I do have a bag full off expensive blocks and cleats....does that count?? I have a fixation for blocks...
I haven't found a way to fit a spare hull, deck, mast and engine in the boat, (unless I count the tender) but I've got a spare for most everything else.
What you need are some of these:
That's a good list Sailingdog. Pretty much whenever anything breaks or needs periodic replacement, I replace it with a new one and rebuild the old one for a spare. So along with your list:
Spare raw water pump, alternator, macerator pump, huge assortment of nuts/bolts, gasket material, zincs, motor brushes for the various electric motors, etc. When I replace my standing rigging, I'll probably save some of the old stuff for spares.
My list will be a bit different, since I don't have an inboard diesel—so no alternator, no raw water pump, etc.
I've seen one friend get stranded after breaking the shear pin in their dinghy outboard....and saw them break the prop off a different week. :) I figure if I have spares for both, I won't need them. :)
Parts Do You Carry Aboard Your Boat??
I have at the moment:
6 oil filters
4 larger fuel filters
3 smaller fuel filters
1 starter ( it came with the boat )
3 raw water impellers
1 large bag of gaskets for the motor ( came with the boat )
100 feet of yellow floating line ( for power boaters ) :p
3 LEDS litebulbs
8 D cell batteries
8 C cell Batteries
20 AA batteries.
12 hose champs ( different sizes )
I am sure I have a lot more, but that is all I could think of, at the moment.
But TB, you got no boat. :)
