    What are your general carry alongs?

    Just curious what you guys always make sure to carry with you.

    Outside of the required things like fire extinguisher, whistle, plugs, tools etc.


    Have a few sections of rope. 2 - 4 ft pieces for attaching to 2 bumpers. 2 10ft pieces for mooring lines, I have 2 small anchors for beaching one on a 30ft line one on a 15ft line. Though don't plan on carrying those all the time.

    Important papers, (boaters lic, insurance, registration, etc)

    couple small dry towels, sun screen, extra ziplocks for wallet and phone and such).

    I write phone numbers on a piece a paper, in pencil because ink can run, then using clear packing tape tape it into the glove compartment.

    I have been thinking about getting an etched plate and gluing it in.

    For I id license, insurace card, 1 credit card and usually about $50 in cash

    electronics cell phone and gps

    safety extra life jacket, tow rope, sunscreen, whistle (tho thinking about a horn) pain reliever and avery small first aid kit

    for long rides clothes light weight long sleeve shirt, hat, pants these get rolled up

    tools pliers cutters and adjustable wrenches and the seadoo tool kit.

    on the tow rope no metal connectors. if one should let go they become a projectile.

    During the summer, where I ride it's 110+ degrees outside. My dad and I carry 2 bottles of water in each ski. My dad and I carry Yaesu VX-6 and VX-7 radios. Tow rope and money is always important. I always wear my GPS when we ride.
