Cat C first aid kits. 1 or 2?

Currently going through the process of preparing a RIB to be coded to cat 3. The SOLAS B equipment is going to live in a grab bag rather than packed into the raft. I see on the list that a cat c first aid kit is part of the SOLAS B pack. If this is in a grab bag (so accessible without having to open up the raft) if it acceptable to have this as the cat c first aid kit for the boat, or do you have to have two - one for the raft and one for the boat?

I had a similar discussion with my surveyor regarding flares. The upshot was that anything in the liferaft grab bag is ONLY for the liferaft, and you will need a separate FA kit for the boat itself. You can't share them.

Thanks for the reply. I suspected that might unfortunately be there case. Looks like we're going to have lots of duplicate kit!
