Grab Bag

When disaster strikes, you may have less than 10 seconds to abandon ship. Put  your safety gear in a waterproof Grab Bag and keep it within reach. It can be a good idea to attach your Grab Bag to a life ring.
One of our skippers, Phillip Barrett, has the following Grab Bag on his recreational fishing boat:
  • Air horn (refillable)
  • Flares – here we have one hand held orange smoke flare, two pin point flares
  • Waterproof VHF handheld radio
  • Epirb
  • Torch
  • Whistle
  • First Aid Kit
  • Thermo Blanket

Test your radio and epirb regularly and make sure all batteries are charged.
