Leave the jack lines, dive knife, and etc. at home. Take a tether for your PFD/harness. Focus on flying carry-on.
If the boat doesn't have adequate radios and GPS (including back-up) you probably don't want to be on it.
Stuff you need: iPod (if so inclined), books to read, and cash. Baby wipes. You probably want your cell phone to help with contacts at both ends of travel. A waterproof bag (like SealLine) for electronics and as a watch bag is advisable.
It's easy to add to the list. The challenge is to take things off.
On a recent delivery the captain and crew were comparing what we brought. We had 7 handheld VHF radios and 5 GPS receivers. I brought a stick blender and an insertion thermometer (for cooking). Guess what got used?
sail fast and eat well, dave
