i didn't post so everybody could take the piss out of him, we should be taking it out of the mca, they're the ones that make us look like fools, what about bailer trunks on ribs, dont see any on hardboats that are coded, why drill a bloody great hole in a good hull and put a bit of canvas over it, and when you're boats swamped and dead in the water they dont work anyway, you've started me off again, time for a cuppa

I'd imagine you'd blunt a few cutting through the BS, take the knife out of your Toolkit and stick a spark plug in it's place, opti juice fuel delivery system---tossers toob perhaps?

Are the Israeli bandages used in case you have to perform an emergency circumcision?

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.

Hi Pete

-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

Jono
