Re: Unusual safety equipment

I have a few LED camping lanterns for backup anchor lights, emergency navigation lights (not legal, but better than dying). They are also useful as extra lights in the cabin.

Re: Unusual safety equipment

I'd like to add to this discussion...sailboats which are prepping their boats as they steam through local mooring fields are a menace. They're so distracted during preparations of mounting and raising sails they are not paying attention to 'general seamanship rules'. Numerous times I have been diving on my boat cleaning the bottom, with dive flags out and along come the fleet of racers motoring past within 20 freakin feet of me. It's truly unbelievable how these rule picking fanatics can have little regard for others and the general rules of boating. I would suggest they all get prop cages or remove their motors completely until they can get a certificate on boater safety. Get you heads out of your little narcisitic as.....thank you.

Re: Unusual safety equipment

The angle grinder is a good one. Some of the cables on my boat require chewing with bolt cutters.

Re: Unusual safety equipment

An oddball one, nerf football. It can be scrunched up small and shoved through a hull breach or Brocken thruhull. It expands on both sides to fill the gap. Cheap, easy, and fits many sizes
Range finder for judging distance to other boats or shore. And can be used over time to tell if you are dragging.
Drybags for electronics.
