You're lucky you can get outside the limit and discharge overboard.

Our cruising is limited by the proximity of pump-out facilities and/or shore toilets.

1. (air) Horn
2. Tossable PFD (other PFDs required so don't count).
3. Cell phone (yep, portable maps/charts, and emergency calling device)

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.

I was nearly going to say "my reading glasses" but if I did some smart arse moderator (no names no pack drill but you know who you are) would probably laugh at me.

I’m not sure if I would be more embarrassed to be caught wearing something that looked like that while I was still alive, or having someone I know have to identify my body if I drowned.

As for your three things.
1. Credit Card
2. Condoms
3. Cash
You can usually improvise anything else…..

If I could have one more thing, it would be a mannequin with a waving arm, just in case I sail past the Welshman.
