What is wise to carry as spares?
I know I have to do a lot of thinking and come up with my own list but I am interested in your experience.
Would love to see your list and opinion of what is enough and what is too much.
In no particular order:
impellers plus cover plate gaskets for engine and generator; Assortment of fuses
and bulbs; Extra line in common sizes; At least one or two spare anchors; Spare anchor rode
; Extra fuel
filters for engine and generator; Extra Racor
filters if you use them; Waxed twine with a sail repair needle; Duct tape, rigging
tape, self amalgamating electrical
tape; Assorted hose clamps and stray lengths of hose; Oil
for generator and engine; Spare alternator
belts; A spare 4-part block and tackle; Extra shackles, clevis pins, cotter pins; Some extra blocks; Extra wire various sizes, misc crimp connectors plus crimping tool; Misc machine screws, washers, nuts, assorted self tapping screws; Tools for all the above; etc.
