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.

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.
