    An assortment of hose clamps in ALL sizes.
    Hi-Temp RTV silicone (You can use hose clamps, silicone, and a beer can to repair a broken water hose; I've seen it done).
    WaterWeld (JB product that works underwater.)

    There is a new tape at Home Depot/Lowes that is stronger than duct tape. Its called "Gorilla Tape" and is from the makers of Gorilla Glue. Its STRONG stuff.

    I carry a 4" wide roll of shrink wrap tape.
    I also have a little bag of about 5 replacement freeze plugs and O-rings.

    I carry a new set of accessory/serpentine belts and several new impellers. Also, make sure the tool kit that you carry has the right tools to do the jobs that we do when we are "dry docked." For example, the little tool sets don't often have deep sockets and all of the socket extensions that one may need to get to certain places.

    Years ago, I bought two small duffel bags from WalMart or the like. One is red, and is full of flares, portable radio, whistle, and other "emergency" stuff. The other is blue and is full of much of what I described above. Its pretty easy to grab either bag in the case of emergency, and I can instruct someone else easily as well.

    I try to hide a 12 pack on the boat somewhere. It can be a long ride home when the cooler is empty.
