If you were going to design a kit to carry on board your vessel for the purpose of fixing leaks that ocurr in piping or hull breach, what would you put into it?

Here are some ideas I got from a practical marine salvage book:
Wood bungs to drive into holes or truhulls with a rubber or wooden mallet
1/2" ply wood at least 1'X1' predrilled with a hole in the middle
sever drywall fasteners. the one where the wings can fold down and are spring loaded
lenght of rubber hose or tube for use as a gasket.
Underwater tape (has a metal backing)
wet setting puddy
concrete (concrete box method for bottom holes)
Fiberglass matt and epoxy resin (fast cure)
Large manual pump
Drill, saw, nails
