Basic equipment and tools to have on a pwc at all times.
As I am a redneck PWCer in the delta and I sacrifice tool and equipment space for beer. So I thought a thread of the basic tools you carry and the ones you wish you had in a bad situation would be a good idea.
Put up your list and any story behind why you carry certain tools/items
I generally have the following.
All basic tools I use to work on the engine. They fit in a small bag.
Enough oil to replace it all I case I capsize/sink it.
Gapped spark plugs
Several hose clamps and a rubber hose repair kit
Long nose needle nose pliers and some coat hanger to clear the jet pump of obstructions
Duck tape and E-tape.
A wet hull repair kit(for long trips)
Safety equipment. I only pack this stuff if I am going for a long ride.
Hand held radio(2 for off shore fishing)
Basic first aid kit
Pistol (off shore fishing only)
Please show your list or mention anything I missed. Obviously some items are not needed for a fun day at the lake but for long trips.....

For your longer trips a flare device probably couldn't hurt.

i would take your hand held radio with you at all times..
the same reason you would need any of those tools would be the same exact reason you would NEED that hand held radio.. a few of my trips have started off as a quick ride and quickly ended up with me having mechanical problems i could not fix with the tools i brought, that hand held radio would have came in very handy.. i never ride without one..

Hose pincher in case I need to get towed back. I keep extra hose clamps on the hoses themselves. I have had 2 exhaust hose clamps break in the past which had me "limping" back to the ramp.
Other than that, screw driver, pliers, small LED flashlight, cell phone, tow strap and my Seatow membership card

Long needlenose are a great idea.

I have some hand tools with Fluid Film (or similar anti-rust product) sprayed on the exposed metal, then sealed inside a heavy duty zip lock Baggie (Freezer type). Separate zip lock bag holds a couple of cotton cloths to wipe the tools and my hands if I need to actually use the tools.
I have yet to find a sealed baggie that the tools don't eventually poke holes through and then start getting moisture inside. I just replace the baggies every so often.
