I have a small shoulder bag containing transmitter, lifting straps, bailing syringe, and some spare batteries.
I do not carry tools to the lake.  No pointing in trying to repair something lakeside when you will just loose the bits and get dust and dirt inside.  Each boat has a small magnet inside to retain an allan key for grub screws.

Boats, transmitter, lifting straps, tools, chairs, sunscreen.  We have a collapsible wagon to carry it all from car to pond.


No spare batteries as my SLA's last longer than my endurance sitting by the pond.  I leave the pond toolbox in the car, but take it in case of failed fuses, loose set screws, etc.  Murphy's law corollary:  If you don't have a tool you will surely need it.

We are fortunate because apart from transmitters and batteries, everything else is available in the boathouse.

Workbench,tools, soldering station, spares such as fuses and grub screws and a choice of boat lifts and trolleys. Various boat recovery ships and devices are there too.

Even spare plastic props of various sizes and types.

If we need replenishments, a member usually gets what is needed and donate them.
