what to keep on my boat

i have a 16' mistral and it's a open cockpit design. now i plan on having a outboard on the boat. what equipment should i keep on board. i know pdfs for every one but what else. the reason i ask this because of the limited space to put stuff.

Rather depends on where in the world you are, and what the requirements in your area vis-a-vis safety gear.

It still really depends on where you are and what the rules are. Beyond being legal, on a boat this size (assuming on a lake?), a few tools to make simple repairs is about all you need. Anything else would be determined on each outings needs more than boat needs.

Where are you sailing? IMHO, for dingy day sailing, something to bail with, a paddle if you want (you can also rock the boat side to side to propel yourself forward), pfds (a dingy vest), something to drink, something to eat.... that's about it. And of course venue appropriate clothing. That's related to the 'where' question. Extra? A handheld VHF for weather and emergency coms. Boat should have a compass, but if it doesn't not too much to worry about. Assuming you're sailing in reasonable conditions fairly close to shore.

It helps people answer your question if you put a bit more information in your profile, especially location and boat info.

I would check with the Coast Guard for required equipment, as well as your local authorities. Have at least that stuff on board and just for personal satisfaction get a Coast Guard courtesy inspection and earn a sticker.

Apart from required equipment, it all depends on your boat as to what else you'd want to carry.

Just proves once again that i should not make assumptions. Based on salt water bay I think that Walt's list seems to cover what you need.

If you are in the USA, you have certain legal requirements. This website presents it pretty well.
