Gear List

Captain Peter has shared with me a list of gear that I ought to bring.


Gear List

Suitcases are not recommended: Space is limited - everything should be brought aboard in foldable bags.

Standard Gear

    • Valid passport & valid medical card
    • Sleeping bag with removable cotton liner or bed sheet.
    • Flashlight with extra batteries & spare bulb

    • Beach towel

Recommended Clothing

    • Windbreaker, gloves, toque or watch cap
    • 2 pairs of non-skid shoes
    • Raincoat and rain pants (or other wet weather gear) are essential – rain ponchos are not suitable, rubber boots would be an asset.
    • 3 pairs of shorts, 2 pairs of jeans
    • 1 or 2 sweaters and/or sweatshirts (preferably wool – hooded is best)
    • Enough socks & underwear for each day. (a few pair of wool socks are a good idea because they will keep feet warm during chilly watches)

    • Swim suits (one that can withstand the rigors of working)
    • T-shirts
