for a whistle I recommend the Storm (the big one on the picture): Is the louder think you will get and works great wet or even under water. Don't leave with out it!!!

"The Storm® All-Weather Safety Whistle is the loudest whistle on the market. It's unique patented design allows it to be heard under water, up to 50 feet, because the sounding chamber forces all water to be purged when the whistle is blown. Made in the USA. It's perfect for divers, lifeguards, and for recreation! Creates a clear, high frequency sound, with a power rating over 75% greater than other referee and safety whistles"

I keep them in waterproof case.:cool: Its not the safer than clip but at least they don't get wet. In here generally the sea is very calm especially in summer.

Not too much, keys in a waterproof case, camera sometimes, mesh bag for odds and ends as well as for filling it up with stones to act as an anchor if doing deeper dives is on the agenda. And twice I used the float to secure 9 kgs of anchor and chain that I keep finding every summer, without the float I wouldn't have been able to salvage the anchors.

Talking about car keys, my keys are rated to 13 meters! Once I forgot them in my bathing suit pocket and realized it after putting my wetsuit on! Since I didn't feel like going back I crossed my fingers :head :duh :hmm :naughty and kept on. I was in a quite secluded area but the chip worked and the car started...to my great relief!

Hi :)
I keep my phone and stuff like that in a waterproof bag designed for small cameras, its a permenant attatchment to my buoy, be dead handy for keys with electrical bits if you forget to put them safe elsewhere

I like to move with my kayak, bit like a second boy... and load tones of gear! yes, plenty and plenty of fancy and expensive gear... :duh

For food everything and anything taste good, but still like the sweet condensate milk in tubes... waterproof, and are a fast energy easy to squeeze in the mouth. :p

Because the kayak stays so close to the fishing ground, my boy just carry the minimum: whistle, fish threader, and something to keep crayfish (mono holders), if needed a torch.

My car keys stays around my neck under the suit, and whatever happen to my gear, I'm able to drive back: More than one guy around here have seen the fish and his boy take over by a toothy friend... and the keys with it!

But on my kayak I keep two pairs of fins, guns, spears, VHF, filleting knife, bungees and floating lines, soap... and much more... and of course beer for after the diving. I may be able to open an on the water shop for guys that forget or loose stuff, but for sure I'm always ready for anything. And since my ray attack this weekend I will add a first aid kit.

But I don't have manage yet to have a internet connection and check the forum on site... :waterwork
