Expectation of Crew's Own Equipment

4676 Views 57 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  outbound
I am crewing from the Bahamas to the Chesapeake. This is my first offshore experience.

I am bringing my own foul weather gear, PFD w/ harness, and warm clothes that dry fast. Is there any other offshore equipment that is generally supplied by the crew themselves? For example, I don't have a tether, but know the boat owner does. Is that the type of thing where I should have my own?

Basically, if one needs a torch one doesn't know the boat. But I'm not racing.
2. broke things (I got tired of cleaning yogurt and eggs out of the bottom of the reefer),
go to a camping supplies store. they make plastic containers designed to hold eggs. work great.
