Yes, a compass for those return to shore in the fog like in the case of last weeks Sept 19th  2010 PLS trip.
Take a bearing of shore then point your kayak on the same bearing number and paddle back with confidence you will find where you launched from. Modern day electronics are great, but in an event where batteries and salt water may play havoc on them, a strap mount compass will not be affected

The other day while watching a episode of Sport Fishing  with Dan Hernandez, the Coast Gard had a product that resembled thick playdoh in a large dog food can. The pushed it right into a large hole with water coming through.  Leak pretty much stopped. Anyone heard of this stuff?

Would like to find to find it for all my boats and kayaks.

Did you find any of the stuff, ive seen that stuff before but wasnt sure how well it would work on a kayak with the hull be so thin. nothing to really grab to but guess its a good safety precaution.

saw this on my friend will's site the other day - they guy had to land the boat to do the repair but kept him on the water for the day.

the idea of stuffing a large soft plastic into a crack had never occurred but worth keeping in the back of your mind

I use the Standard Horizon HX150, heres the Amazon Description.

Standard HX150 Handheld VHF Marine Radio. The submersible HX150 is our "best value" handheld floating VHF. With a new slim, form fitting case design, oversized easy to read LCD and backlit keypad, the HX150 looks and feels great at a fraction of the cost of comparable VHF radios. Upgraded with a new Li-Ion battery, this VHF will supply you with more than 10 hours of operating time. Other great features include: Submersible JIS-7 / IPX7 (3.3 feet for 30 minutes), all USA, International and Canadian Marine Channels Programmable Scan, Dual Watch, Ch16 Priority Scan; NOAA weather channels with weather alert, selectable 5 and 1 Watt transmit power, and a battery life indicator. The HX150 comes packaged with 1030mAh non memory rechargeable battery, belt clip, 110 VAC trickle charger and a drop-in charging cradle. The HX150 is backed by an industry leading 3-year waterproof warranty. 2.32"(W) x 5"(H) x 1.34"(D).

Cost me 93 bucks on Amazon Prime, works good.

I chose not to go with the cobra with bluetooth, because I am not in the habit of answering the phone tow, and more for concerns about battery life.
