Good Items To Have On Board
Along with the usual tools and "emergency repair" parts like zip ties, ring clamps, fuses, lengths of hose for fuel water etc. there are a number of"'emergency" parts and just plain "helpful" parts that I keep in a couple of plastic bins. Here are a three that Santa brought me this year for my "safety bins":
Rescue Tape - a silicone-based tape that has 950psi tensile strength, can withstand 8,000 volts, 500F heat, oil, acids, water etc. It will bind-up and hold most failed hoses and electrical connections until you reach port.
Stay Afloat - a USCG/CCG recognized emergency leak plug and sealant that can be molded to fit hull cracks and holes and through hull/seacock failures. A nice compliment to safety bungs.
Jabsco Water pressure Regulator - great to install in-line at marina water outlets to reduce high city water pressures or spikes from well-fed systems. I install one on my water supply hose wherever I travel to prevent my shore supplied water pressure from blowing-out my boat's water inlet connection. Ever seen how a fast a boat fills if this blows out?
