FIRST AID / SAFETY

What do you keep in your boat for emergencies? Here's what I've got..

1. Fire extinguisher
2. First aid kit
3. Flashlight

I'm seriously considering getting a suture kit.

I think you can get the super glue type stuff for cuts over the counter now. That would be a good addition.

I also carry a snakebite kit (works for bee stings as well).

Cell phone is a good emergency item as well.

As for the suture kit. A light wire hook with the barb pinched and some 6 or 8 pound braided line and some hard liquor for anesthetic and you're good to go. I would certainly have a doctor check your work the first couple times.

I just would add a Marine band radio. I also think if you hit the great lakes at all you need to have a flare set up.

The super glue stuff (liquid bandage or something like that)works great out in the boat I've had it in my boat the last 2 years and have used it more then I'd like to admit.

A very loud whistle, and your favorite provisions (reg beer, lite beer, dark beer....)
