Most everything memtioned above   Also I put together my own first ad kit.  Which I added horse leg wraps from TSC.  Actually better than ace bandages and way cheaper.  Bought a medium/small waterproof tool box.

 Spare prop, prop wrench, and a spare nut and washer in case you change on the water and drop the original nut and washer into "deep" water.

I keep a couple golf towels clipped in reachable places to dry my hands.
Tape measure of some sort.
Pee bucket.
Compass

The kill is the satisfying, indeed essential, conclusion to a successful hunt. But, I take no pleasure in the act itself. One does not hunt in order to kill, but kills in order to have hunted. Then why do I hunt? I hunt for the same reason my well-fed cat hunts...because I must, because it is in the blood, because I am the decendent of a thousand generations of hunters. I hunt because I am a hunter.- Finn Aagard

The battery number is CR2450N.  It has to have the "N" at the end.  You can find the CR2450 in Walmart and K-Mart, but just a warning that they will not work.

Has to be big enough for a soup can to slide thru freely.

a 3 foot pipe would be pointless. The water is still cold this time of year.
