Re: What if I get that call?

Pack a small duffle bag and keep it in your vehicle at all times. Keep to the basics.

The most important thing in the bag will be your gloves. Make sure to have several pairs of good quality sailing gloves ready at any time.
Knee pads if you wear them, sunglasses, sunscreen, change of clothes, a sweater if it gets cold and your foulies.

After gloves the next most important thing you should carry at all times in your bag is a pair of clean shorts; Boxer or Briefs what ever you prefer and dry socks. There is nothing worse than getting off the boat and soaked form head to toe with nothing clean or dry to change into for the dock party, or the ride home for that matter.
