    I don't have a complete list for you, but--specific to the OB jet--carry the tools to get at and remove the impeller (for adjusting the shims) and a file to sharpen the leading edges of the impeller. Not really a spare part, but a bottle or two of heet (I carry red).

    I carry an extra foot and sleeve, grease, plugs, water pump kit, complete tool kit for my 2 stroke. I also carry a one burner stove, small pot, a couple Mt. House meals, and a tarp. Got stranded overnight several years ago so I added the last items, and have never needed them.

    PLus a full set of shims, nut, plastic washer and 2 lock rings. I just had a rope get sucked up and had to remove the foot in open water about 2 foot deep. I am adding a set of 6 SS nylocks for the foot.

    You might also consider the hardware for the nozzle.

    Water pump kit with grease, new pee valve with collar if your boat uses one.

    Fuses. A trouble light can be nice too.

    I always make sure I have at least two impeller keys, dropped one while removing a ton of rocks and was SOL. Had to file down a allen wrench to use to make it home, 55mile trip back out from the middle of nowhere.
