Top 10 Items To Keep On Your Boat At All Times #infographic

Be highly prepared every time you go cruising. Part of being ready is to stock your boat with things that will keep you safe and happy when out on the water. Hold all these ten things along with you on your cruise.

Life jackets / Throwable Life Preservers (PFD-Instant flotation systems)
People can't wear them on your boat at all times, but make sure you have life jackets on board that fit everyone so that they can support their weight. Life preservers you can reach out at someone in the water in an emergency can help you save lives. Keep at least one stock ready for any emerging situations.

Flares / Audio-signals for emergencies
Signal flares are essential if you are out on the water and need to be spotted so that someone can come and help you. Active flares can give off massive quantities of light and smoke to be visible at a distance. It is also necessary to have audio signals such as a horn and whistle, so that you can warn boats nearby for help.

A Bilge Pump
Leakage on boat can be an enormous issue. For this reason you should equip your boat with an automatic bilge pump. Whether your onboard pump fails or you are unable to keep up with the spilled water, a hand-powered pump will come to the rescue. If your electrical system fails, or you have a small amount of water in the boat, a manual bilge pump can also be used.
