I am not sure if this will fully comply with the Coding requirements, but we have just bought a couple of kits form the following supplier:

www.crewmedic.com

We operate a coded boat and the 1st aid kit is supplied by our marine people in a sealed pack, as is mentioned earlier? So for those cut fingers or little burns we have just had a small ARCO pack. This is not w/proof and does not like damp...

We have bought a couple of these 2day at the Boat Show, so I cannot fully endorse at this stage, but they are rather sensibly (IMHO) graded in a 'Time from Help' system ie. 30, 50 or 180 mins from assistance. I liked that. I also liked the inclusion of eye/wound wash, instant ice packs and burn gels.

They do them in the Ortleib/Flexi waterproof packs or the hard Peli cases. Refills are available, and you could easily use one as you main kit if you had a w/proof or Peli case spare.

Bit of rave review on little info I know, but they knew what they were talking about and had definitely spotted a niche that needed filling.

Might be worth a look?

Stay safe!

if you put you own day ist id kit together then tupperware makes a very good box. They sell a very good and hermeticaly intact range in big COops called lock and seal.

It's difficult for me to get exited about tupperware type stuff but this stuff is the bestest I have seen so far

If I broke my leg and a first aider turned up with their kit in a Tupperware box, I'd tell them to Foxtrot Oscar.

You'll be telling us next to keep a copy of Mrs. Beatons cookbook alongside the Small Craft Almanac, charts and tide tables.

P.S Have you ever had radar on any of your boats?

To be honest knowledge is far more important than a first aid kit.

In a life or death situation the contents of most first aid kits aren't going to help much anyway.

I remember a story not long ago of a woman who's life was saved on a plane with a wire coathanger - a knife and fork and some clingfilm - she was lucky that there were 2 of the world's leading lung specialists on board!!!

An artic full of surgical equipment isn't going to help unless there is someone around who knows how to use it - on the other hand a doctor can always improvise.

Ok Sinjeon

Firstly what do you know about broken legs! I think you'll find treatment has moved on from the lessons you got from Florence Nightingale during the Battle of Hastings.

Secondly If you broke your leg and I turned up the only thing I'd do is larf and say 'that will hurt in the morning' I learnt that technique of one of the countries top paramedics

do you think I need to add a coathanger and Anti Hysterectomy tablets to my first aid kit?

Surely I could cut up the tupperware box with my emergency scalpel and fashion some splints which I could bind together with the coathanger

yes we do have Radar on one of our boats why?

But that highly trained first aider could be Jon Brooks arriving in the nick of time to patch you up and save your life, probably much better than one of those ambulance chaser peeps.

See there you go Mr know it all clever clogs Manning. Anybody with a modicum of medical training would realise my brains were fried using purely natural ingredients!

Regard that smiley as a finger
