its fluid biglash, if you have an engine failure or anything whilst out at sea and its a scorching day and you aint gonna be rescued for a good few hours you are going to need fluids but saying that if it was that hot you would make sure you had fluids with you before you went out as you would need them throughout the day :P

but ye its a crucial bit of gear tbh m8y and ive just not mentioned it in mine cause i dont have it in the kit but do take 2 2ltr bottles of juice with me when we go out as i dont do brews :P

pro-hunter just out of curiosity if your boat sinks and your dry bag is going to be your saviour why do you carry a spare anchor in it???

and my flare box has about 10 flares in it

i should reiterate the question really my dry bag is my emergency bag in case boat sinks

argh right now i got ya :P

we basically have all emergency equipment in what we call a dry bag/box which we carry spare of all esentialls. it is easy accessable in the serious case of sinking so we could grab the radio which in all cases is the most imprtant thing ever in this case. lets just hope it necver happens to myself nor any other small boat angler.
