So this will be our first full season on the great lakes (Erie) on our new to us Catalina 30. We will be doing mostly daysailing with an occasional overnight trip thrown in. I am just wondering what you all think is recommended safety gear on top of the required coast guard stuff.
So far we have Inflatable PFD's with harnesses, thru hull plugs, and a radar reflector. I have been thinking of getting a spare handheld VHF and GPS. What other stuff should we have for the type of sailing we are doing? I don't want overkill but I have seen what this lake can become in no time.
