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

Be highly trained every time you go cruising. Part of getting ready is to pack 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)

You can't wear them on your boat at all times, so 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 necessary if you are out on the water and need to be identified so that someone can come and rescue you. Active flares can give off massive quantities of light and smoke to be visible at a distance. It is also important 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 purpose you should equip your boat with an electric bilge pump. If your onboard pump fails or you are unable to keep up with the leaking water, a hand-powered pump will come to the rescue. When your electrical system fails, or you have a small amount of water in the boat, a manual bilge pump can also be used.
