    What tool should one take wih on a long trip.

    Hello again guys, Thought that I would put together a list of tools that I personally take with me on my long trips. Please feel free to add or suggest any ideas that could help me and other
    Just a note, this kit is tailored mostly around my 2018 RXT-X.



    All of the above fits in the SeaDoo water tight container apart from No.16 which lives just strapped to the same container using the skies strap for quick use.
    The wrenches and small bits are kept inside pouch No.26

    1. Flash light ( might replace that with a smaller one I have at home)
    2. Large and Small Zip-tines
    3. Sharp blade
    4. Locking pliers that can double as nose pliers
    5. Multi screw driver with (Flat, Philips T30 Torx)
    6. 13mm wrench
    7. 10mm wrench
    8. 8mm wrench
    9. 1/4" sealed Ratchet
    10. 1/4" hand driver which also doubles as an extension
    11. 1/4" extension.
    12. long 13mm 1/4" socket
    13. long 10mm 1/4" socket
    14. long 8mm 1/4 socket
    15. long 7mm 1/4 socket
    16. T30 Torx T handle
    17. Some wire and a spear rear drain plug
    18. Temp hose sealing tape
    19. Some Clamps
    20. Spark plug tool
    21. Short 13mm socket
    22. Short 10mm socket
    23. 1/4" adapter that can hold T30 and T40 Torx
    24. Lighter!
    25. Spare key
    26. Small items bag

    This is just tools, I do carry a VHF radio with me at all times and a strobe light that is attached to my life vest.
    I also have a knife attached to one of my fish rod holders on the cooler for quick access.

    Cheers all and happy riding!

    Maybe long needle nose for getting stuff out of intake grate. Maybe flextape and small can WD40....

    Salt or freshwater? How many miles?

    Salt water, 90miles ish a day for 3 days .. needle nose sounds like a good idea! Tape I do have some yes. And we do carry some sea doo lube .. it’s not wd40 but it will keep some bits lubricated

    Your list is quite thorough.

    I keep spare hose clamps installed on the hoses, so I can quickly move them into place if needed.

    I also keep one of these to dig debris out of the pump/impeller:

    A socket to remove the intake grate could also come in handy for difficult to remove debris.

    I picked up a small wood chip once that I could not get out and had to get towed back. Once I was back home and removed the intake grate, it came out with little effort.

    If riding offshore or in the "boonies", I also carry VHF radio, flares and a telescoping paddle.

    Fire extinguisher and small lithium Ion jump starter wrapped in plastic. Spare water for long trips and maybe flares.

    What about an anchor?
