    Who carries a First Aid kit on board?
    My wife was skiing yesterday and took a spill, the ski must have come across her shin some how. Anyways she had a nasty cut we were with friends (Hot-Rods)and they had first aid with them. I've been boating for years and never thought to have a kit on board, but plan on getting one soon. Later when we got home she decided to go to the hospital ER, she ended up with 7 stitches.
    Just a thought. Happy boating.

    I believe it's manitory in Canada. I've allways carried a first aid kit and fire extinuisher in boat and truck. It's been drilled into us in the oil patch for years to carry these and it has come in handy many times. Not to push values on anyone, but it should also be manditory to have a basic first aid course to have a drivers license as it is in most countries in Europe.

    Not only the first-aid kit onboard, but a course on first-aid is a good thing, I have had to take the course alot of time's now, they have to be renewed on a regular basis,but they are good! All 3 of my kid's have it also........( . )( . ).....KIM.......
    JungleBoy,Oil patch? Way to many course's hey?

    Nittro, sounds like you went full circle.......or going in circles,LOL.
    You won't be disappointed with the Warhawk, saw one at Beast of the East, good looking and fast.

    Having to use it: Not something to look forward to.

    Always carry first aid supplies...
    Specially the first aid that applys to burns; chemical and flame.
    I always carry extra gauze and burn supplies. Sounds like over-kill...But you'll thank me when I am around for such a unfortunate tragedy.
