Re: Emergency ditch bag

Water and glucose rations
A measuring cup
A sheath knife
small pack of flares
signaling mirror
small waterproof flashlight
seasickness meds
a 50' floating line with quoit
a mylar survival blanket
some fishing line and hooks
waterproof matches
a survival handbook
miscellaneous stuff that seemed a good idea at the time.

I like the idea of putting a credit card in there - could do a remake of an Amex commercial
