I wouldn't put too much trust in one of those... I was playing around with one while out with friends and it was all over the place.

As far as the initial question goes, preventative maintenance. The gear you have is good. I will not be diagnosing a spark plug issue while on the water.

Been there. I cut my kill switch wires and put male and female ends underneath so if it goes again I just unplug it and hot wire it until I can get a new kill switch.

For Me:
Small & Large Hose Clamp
Impeller (Its an old one from my annual replacement)
Main Belt (and Wrench to loosen belt) (Again its an old one from a replacement)
Bilge Pump (maybe over the top)
Bulb for my incandescent anchor light (I use my boat in the dark often)
All of the usual tools: screwdrivers, wrenches, electrical tape, zip ties, flashlight
Fuel line remover tool (left over from my pump going out)
Knock sensor (for some reason i go through these every 3 years or so)
Extra key hidden somewhere (took half a day of vacation to drive to the nearest dealer to get a replacement)
