Spare parts to carry onboard for Maine to Florida cruise

Postby Tim8806 on Sat Sep 15, 2018 8:29 am

As new owners of a Ranger 31 CB, I posted a couple of previous inquiries, and received many helpful suggestions. Thanks to those who responded.
Next question: We are cruising from Maine to Florida down the East Coast and ICW. I have heard different opinions as to what we should have for spare parts. Our engine is the Volvo Penta 300 hp D4. Suggestions for spare parts have included fan belts, oil filters, a thermostat, and a wide variety of fuses. I'm wondering if anyone has compiled a workable list of such items. That would save me trying to "reinvent the wheel" and undoubtedly omit important items.

You will find what you need here.
I carry all the engine parts except key, secondary filter sensor and crank case filter.
Zincs, fuses, assorted small fuses, mast wing nuts thruster shear pin and bilge cartridge.
Better wipers can be bought locally at auto stores. I bought a spare pump out cap, others have retaining chains.
