Lightbulb Re: Important stuff!

All very good ideas (especially the whistle!). But one thing I always carried was 200' of 5/8th inch Dacron** rope and a single AND double 'block and tackle.' Your (someone else's) boat gets really 'stuck' you'll never pull it out by hand. The combined power of a two pulley set up is amazing.

Edit: ** Nylon rope is stronger (about 20% -25% for a given diameter), but UV will degrade same. Dacron really doesn't care.
