Recommended Spares - suggestions?

Next week I'm heading out for my first long trip with the X2 MCX (two weeks at Shasta) and I don't want anything to spoil the fun. Looking for some suggestions on what spare parts to keep in the boat. Here is my list so far:

spark plugs
spark plug wires
fuel filter
raw water impeller
spare prop

Any other suggestions?

Impellers for the ballast pumps
fuses (stereo as well as look under the dash, there are a few inline fuses)
Extra nut for the spare prop
extra nuts and bolts such as bimini hinge pin, tower knobs
hose clamps
If your ballast system has any plastic fittings, I carry spares of those as well as a plug and a hose clamp that let me cap off any busted water line.

I also carry an old standard bilge pump, over the side, silicon hose, cigarette lighter plug, type ballast pump in case the ballast system goes FUBAR

Cool, thanks. Trust me the boat doesn't go anywhere without a full beer supply. Hmmm, a keg in the back corner might work well as surfing ballast...

Since you have an 07, I didn't include parts you should have for an older boat like points, belts, trailer wheel bearings...
I assumed you'd also get the tool list together (a spare prop isn't much help without a prop puller)
Of course you would loose your man card if you didn't have duct tape and tie wraps
