I have a regular kitchen timer but I sleep the sleep of the dead and it's innocuous sound does me no good to turn off and turn over to go back to sleep. So I went on the hunt for a real noise shattering device and found this.

Fishing anyone?.................My first aid kit
I guess everyone is different, so I tailored the contents to what my medical history has been. Tums, aspirin, throat lozenges, band aids, swimmer's ear, iodine, scissors, needle and thread, sun burn cream, thermometer, safety pins, Lidocaine, athlete's foot, ibuprofen, Tylenol, isopropyl alcohol, and bandages. I need to pick up some prescription medicine from the doctor including seasickness medication, and antibiotics. I will keep it around me and add to it as I see fit.

preparing to visit
Next week I am heading down to the boat to spend another week working on her. Even though I haven't been down there since May, I have not been idle. Besides collecting stuff I have finally got her documented after 4 months with the 7% Florida sales tax paid.
I ordered an anchor light and tricolor from Bebi Electronics in Fiji and converted my Guest Masthead light over which also has a strobe light.
Also some special spider spray to hopefully kill all the recluse spiders on the boat.
I am hoping to replace my compass on the boat with this new one. The one on the boat doesn't work and you can't see through the glass.
Next is a marine outdoor speaker that has an ear piercing alarm on it that I plan on mounting to the mast near the spreaders.
Next a couple of self tailing winches.
And as well, a head sail, some sheets of lexan, coax cable, some rigging parts and lots more.
I'll have my work cut out for me when I get there, but this time I am not going to bust my gut trying to accomplish everything.
