I have been building confidence and am now paddling solo outside the harbor. Currently my safety gear is paddle float, bilge pump, mirror, and whistle. As I paddle I go through worst case scenarios and feel i may want to add a flare, die pack, flashlight.
I am looking for suggestions on other items I might want to carry. Which of these items will work well for a kayak. Where should I carry them, in the boat or PFD?
