Other than the obvious life jackets, throw cushion, net, etc. what do you guys carry with you in your dry storage? Some things I’ve always found handy are toilet paper (in a ziplock), small tool box, flashlight. Just interested to know and maybe I can pick up on a couple new ideas...

I carry a spare prop/hub/nut in a milk crate for both the outboard and the trolling motor. Also spare keys.

Adventure-class first aid kit (includes some things for dealing with trauma such as quik-clot bandages), several 24" heavy duty cable ties (for emergency repair), spare fuses for the ones I know are in the boat's electrical system, compact jump-starter (smaller than a brick). Mine has a built-in flashlight, strobe, and USB back-up battery port. In the pocket of PFDs I have a tethered rescue strobe (~$35) - waterproof 48 hour strobes visible for 3 miles in daylight. A toilet brush under the rear deck. Why the toilet brush? To clean the gearcase water intake screen if it gets clogged with mud or vegetation - or nasty shoes that got in the mud before they go on the carpet,

All the old marker buoys I’ve pulled out of the lake. Spare Ultrex prop, pin, and nut. Sunscreen. Bug spray. ....and a towel.

That’s what is in both rear storage boxes, combined.
Rod locker has 24 combos. Starboard locker has two life jackets, a throwable, net, and lean seat and pedestal.

Front middle box has 10 3700’s and a small Mac tool bag full of reel service stuff like new spoils of InvisX, oil, screwdrivers.

Back middle box has 20 1gallon zip locks full of plastics.

Livewells usually have 5 winners in them.

Travel light and bring it back heavy is my motto.

I have a full tool kit that fits in a spot in my boat... a jumper box to loan people..... a rope to two people...... in addition to what you listed... none of that is in my dry storage area.

now my dry storage area has so much stuff I could not list it all..


I got flip flops, shorts, short socks, long socks, sweat pants, hoodie, regular ball cap, floppy hat, extra shoes, two rain coats, one rain pants, extra ultrex remote, extra talon remote, extra batteries for all my stuff on the boat, big led light with battery pack, full box of granola bars, full box of fruit snacks, one gallon of water..

extra prop, prop wrench




For a club tourney last week I took most of my tackle out as I planned to run to a dock a long long ways away if the sun came out at all. and boy did my boat handle like a porsche and hole shot like a drag car.... I didnt take out any clothes, Im always changing to my spare stuff on the water...
