At home, when someone gets a minor injury, we all have basic supplies to treat it. For more serious injuries, we hop in the car for a “quick” visit to our local emergency room.
It is extremely important to not only have a first aid kit in your home, but also your boat. You can either buy a small first aid kit or follow my lead and put together your own that is specific to boating. Your water-resistant tackle box is a great resource for a DIY first aid kit. You can further protect these first aid supplies by storing them in plastic baggies. Don’t forget to let your guests know where the kit is stored!
