I have a half skirt, which is pretty much only good to keep my legs from getting sunburned and splashes from landing in the cockpit. I also have a spray skirt that fits my wife's boat she refuses to use, it fits okay on my boat to keep higher splashes out but would not stand up to a huge splash or a roll.
I have a sponge and spare water in the cockpit.
My vest is a WW rescue vest. I have a few energy bars in a pocket, whistle and mirror. The vest has a serrated knife on my shoulder and a short tow leash.
Currently on a strict budget so the kayak investments are limited to near nothing for now. I have a camel back I am thinking of making into a kayak pack. Add a drybag with a first aid kit, flashlight and space blanket. I will add a dry bag to the boat with some survival clothes and some food.
Once budget allows, I need to get a full sized "real" spray skirt. PLB, die pack, flares, flare gun, and better VHF.
