Can't leave home without it

This should be fun...
A recent thread on water makers got me thinking:
Besides your Nemo cockpit slippers, remote Waggoner page turner and the Jim Neighbors choir collection, what are some of the things you would rather not be without on your boat?

The motors, for sure. Then in no particular order the rudders and wheel, the toilets and toilet paper, and in this climate, the overhead and windows.

The wife, the dog, a chartbook of the area, a compass and a lead line are about it for things that are absolutely essential. Everything else is pretty much a luxury.

Oh, and a can opener.

Besides boat stuff...

Kindle. I forgot my kindle in a seatback pocket of an airliner a few months ago. Luckily I was on my way to NYC and could get a replacement easily. If I'd been flying back to Ketchikan I would have delayed the boat trip home by enough days to get a new Kindle in the mail.

Interesting that the three coffee comments are by Aussies.
We have our E61 machine but have still to acquire our boat! Soon?

Lead lines are handy for finding depth at the stern when stern tied...sometimes the bottom can be really steep and the depth sounder (amidship) can be way off.

An autopilot and a good pair of binoculars.



Oh yes, and a good espresso machine.

More wine and beer than I can drink (if that is possible) my nespresso machine and heaps of capsules, and my fishing gear and spear guns the list is endless.

Says a lot about Aussie coffee culture eh? I`ve been thinking of switching to a capsule machine, compact, no grinding beans onboard,fast warm up, but the little Sunbeam still works well and I don`t like being captive to one capsule brand.

Maybe we should call it Australasian (or ANZAC) coffee culture!
I suggest you stay with actual espresso and away from International "coffee drinks". You would be taking a backward step to Nespresso. When you are ready for a change move up to an E61 HE machine and Italian grinder and accept that great coffee requires human input.
Needless to say I'm in the industry and a coffee snob! (Aussie coffee forum).
