Do you know how to use a tourniquet? dangerous piece of kit which you can do more harm than good with. Why 4 x airways? who is using them?
Why some many knives, you could start a small war with all that lot. Why a personal EPIRB each? do you really need them on a rib used for coastal passages.
You need some more fire extinguishers.
Why 10 life jackets? but only 12 litres of water? thought the recommendation was 2 litres for each person on board.
Some good items listed though but probably a bit OTT unless you are corssing the Atlantic.
-Two Danforths for Coding
-Anchor Ball on top of the console
-I believe 10mm Warp is fine
-Red Flares because I have plenty
-No Whites as if I bake down in front of a tanker I have no issue in letting a red one off.
-Yes I am trained to use tourniquets & 4 various size air ways
-Plenty of knifes - cus having saved someones life once because they got trapped under a boat I just like them.
-Personal EPIRBS are just great and each professional member should have one as they are so cheep, 2 guys lost their lives up here if they have personal epirbs they would still be around now.
-10 Lifejackets as we are coded for 6
