Storage Tips


Store both kit together in a waterproof container (if there ain`t waterproof) and together whit your liferaft and "Bug Out Bag"


Store in an easily accessible position, not in the back of a storage hold, or underneath other boxes. You might need it in a hurry. It`s also easier to bring it on land and the liferaft.


Check your emergency kit and equipment often. (The best is each time you sail). Replace anything that`s running low or past its use-by date.

Note! Think about how you pack this in terms of access for younger children...!
