Repair/ Emergency Kit for raft

I'm curious what everyone keeps in their emergency/ repair box on their boat, aside from first aid stuff.

I had a pretty good wake up call this morning when I broke one of the military valves on my boat and lost all of the air out of my rear chamber. Luckily it happened in the garage when I was topping off before we left for the day.

Needless to say I will be adding a spare valve to my kit but I'm curious what everyone else has in theirs.

As always pics are a plus!

Thanks!

My repair kit is too extensive to list but invest 25 bucks or so in the big roll of Tear Aid brand tape type A. It will fix a hole in just about anything including your boat. Type B is for vinyl if you have some vinyl products.

Thanks Dsrtrat. Is that something that I would use just temporarily and then remove it and patch my boat if it came to it? I assume so but just want to clarify.

Thanks!

Nice little trick to keep up your sleeve. I've only had to use it once, but it worked like a charm.
Now I keep it in my kit at all times.
I get them for birthday presents for all my boater friends too

And yeah, Tear-Aid is a temporary thing on boats, till you can get to camp and patch it for real.
Holds great tho. I have some that's been holding my tent's rainfly together for years, still holding strong.

Tear Aid works great as an emergency fix, I have seen it repair some pretty big problems. A plus is that it will stick to just about anything. For big rips sew up the hole with baseball stich, slap some Tear Aid on and repair it when you get home or have time on the river.

Thanks guys. I just bought some Tear Aid on Amazon, and will be adding that. So far I have the tear aid, a couple of spare hose clamps for my oar clips, spare valve, tools for valve replacement and the hose clamp.

What else should I toss in there?
