Sorry for the un-muffled guffaws but the one thing I would not want to bring along while sailing is work from the office.

OK. When I was still working, a cell phone was a necessity. I got my first one in 1990. But never, never, never, while sailing and certainly not so I could bring work along with me on those rare days when I could get away for a few hours on the water.

Isn't it interesting, though, how many people think of those little gadgets that did not even exist just a few years ago, as "Necessities"

The Bears two cents:
Now this is a real good question. Being a small craft, 24' with a shallow draft, 3', I think my choice would be battery and nav. lites. Most of my sailing is coastal and at night I want all those trawlers to see me before they run over me. I don't belive kero-lamps would give them enought time to push over and miss me. They seem to have trouble enough with 5 and 10 watt blubs now but I do belive that its probably not watching. I do agree fathometer is a good choice for those of you who drag 5' or more particularly if you are single handing. Day or night its hard to judge the bottom over 4' in most waters, and to swing a lead and steer too, thats a bit much.
