Depending upon your level of MCOCD, here's a start of on-board basics that have optimized our on water time and minimized down time. Disclaimer: we are on larger lakes in remote locations and being self-sufficient is a must. There's more but these will handle most needs.

- PFD's

- Fenders and fender lines, I have 4 each but rarely use more than 2 (Phender Pros a huge plus)

- Box Anchor and anchor line (no chain rode needed with box style)

- (2) 15' dock lines, (2) 25' docking lines, I prefer 1/2" diameter

- Spare prop and puller (weekend saver)

- Onboard tool kit of basics including flashlights, stainless nuts/bolts/screws, quart oil, electrical/duct tape, zip ties, knife (thread search on TT, tons of good ideas)

- Tow ropes (ski, wake, surf)

- Tow Flag and clamp mount for tower

- Cleaning supplies stay onboard along with rags (separate TT search)

- Rear ratchet tie downs for trailer

- If towing long distances there are recommended road trip tools/kits (separate TT search)

- Spare boat key hidden aboard or in tow vehicle

- Towels, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, warm/dry clothes stash

- Trailer hitch lock

- Bottle Openers, Go Pro Mounts & Hardware, Smartphone USB chargers, Smartphone windshield or dash mount, Navionics app

- Garage tool list can grow quickly but a battery charger has saved us and friends many times
