    gus - My boat has a plastic box that always, always is tucked in a storage space so it is available in the event of breakdown. Spare parts it contains: new impeller and gasket, water pump/alternator belt, and large fresh water hoses from engine top side (there are two on the Outback). Impeller was from an online store. Rest of the spare parts I got from my Moomba dealer. Also in the box: roll of duct tape, clear swim goggles, knife, and tools necessary to switcht the spare parts. Like American Express card, don't leave the pier without these. Hope you have a great vacation. - Deerfield

    I always carry an extra bilge pump motor that I pre-splice with connectors. I cut the old one and added the same connectors. Nothing will shut your day down quicker than a dead bilge pump and a bilge full of water!!! I also carry a 2 pack of drain plugs from Walmart. I dropped the original in the lake at the ramp and almost ruined a good day on the lake. Luckily we found it and I went and bought the extras the next day!!!

    A fuel filter might be another to add.

    gus - Probably, yes. Maybe go online today and order what is available. Tomorrow follow up to customer service with any quesitons and confirm skidim got the order. Then, anything not available from skidim you could pick up from a local skiers choice dealer or auto parts supply house. In a day or two you should have everything you need in the event of breakdown while on vacation. - Deerfield
