When Pi sees the “island of bananas,” he does not think to grab them to use as food later. He does, however, retrieve an item from the “island” that later proves to be a godsend. What is this item?

The item Pi retrieved from the "island of bananas" was a the nylon net that held the bananas together.
The bananas on which she floated were held together by the nylon net with which they had been lowered into the ship. When she stepped off the bananas into the boat, they bobbed up and rolled over. The net became loose. Without thinking about it, only because it was at hand's reach and about to sink, I took hold of the net and pulled it aboard, a casual gesture that would turn out to be a lifesaver in many ways; this net would become one of my most precious possessions.
