In mine I have Black electrical tape. and yep its been used a few times and it works well.

sliced a 1 inch cut in my finger to a depth of 5mm at the side of my fingertip.

Taped it back together and now have a nice small scar there. better than stitches. :-)

and eye wash, some plasters and a bandage.
and the most inportant 2 things....

VHF and MOBILE PHONE

:-)

You may have seen it on telly, but this very hard hitting ad campaign drives home the benefit of getting first aid training. If you have an old qualification think about updating it.

Warning, not suitable for young or sensitive viewers but not gory:

All,

RNLI don't carry AEDs not because of salt water risk but because of access window. Fast ILB launch = 5-6 mins from pagers. Time to cas - 5min +?, often longer. Likelihood of success = minimial.

Lifeguards/Thames do carry as casualty access is much quicker.

I was listening to an arsey bus driver recently criticising a boat operator for not having an AED on-board (one of his passengers had had a stroke so irrelevant anyway).

Bla bla bla you'd think a boat with loads of passengers (100) would have an AED bla bla bla all those older tourists bla bla bla

John, sez I , did you not offer him the one from the bus?
