Throw line / rescue quoits

With all the talk about life rafts etc I was wondering how many people carried a throw line
I think they are a good idea because they allow you to get to someone who is in an inaccessible place while keeping the boat in deep enough water to keep it safe, and yet it is not something you often see on a rib and I don't know why Any thoughts welcome

Louise, do you guys carry a defibrilator? Or a stretcher? Blood transfusions? Insulin? Surely someone must carry a hyberparic chamber on board.

I was taught how to make a stretcher in the Girl Guides, using a couple of shirts and two broom handles. Not sure how easy it would be to rustle up a defibrilator though!

Of course! In the summer we carry a parasol too - just so no-one gets sunstroke when we're at rest. Every Girl Guide knows she has to BE PREPARED!
