    Greg,
    I agree with your minimalist list. My emergency “ditch bag” contains Davis Mk3 with cheap casio quartz waterproof watch attached (GMT) and small table of declination and Eqof time. pasted on back. (No almanac needed) + pilot charts+ homemade plastic nocturnal for Polaris correction. (just for fun, but it works!). I’ve practiced this a few times and usually get to within 5-10 miles of reality.
    Francis
