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

Any time you go cruising be highly educated. Part of getting ready is to pack stuff in your boat that will keep you safe and comfortable while out on the sea. Keep all those ten things on your cruise together with you.

Life jackets (PFD-Instant flotation systems) / Throwable Life Preservers

You can't wear them at all times on your boat so make sure you have life jackets on board that suit everyone so they can bear their weight. Life preservers where you can reach out in an emergency to someone in the water will help save lives. Keep at least one stock ready for any situation that occurs.

Emergency Flares / Audio-Signals

If you're out on the water and need to be identified so somebody can come and rescue you, signal flares are required. Active flares can give off large quantities of light and smoke to be seen from a distance. Audio signals such as a horn and whistle are also necessary, so that you can alert boats nearby for help.

A Pump with a Bilge

Leakage can be a huge problem on boat. You will be equipping your boat with an electric bilge pump to this end. If your onboard pump fails or you can not keep up with the water that leaks, a hand-powered pump will come to the rescue. Whether your electrical system fails, or you have a small amount of water inside the boat, you can always use a manual bilge pump.
