What must you have on a boat?

Such a kit includes life jackets for all crew members, including life jackets for children and even life jackets for animals, a moisture-proof flashlight, fire-fighting equipment – fire extinguishers, a fire blanket, and a bucket with a metal handle and rope, scoop, and hand pump.

Extinguishing equipment and firefighting equipment on the yacht is an important aspect of yacht safety that deserves a careful approach. To a large extent, safety depends on the availability of tested lifejackets and fire extinguishers, as well as crew training for emergencies on the yacht at sea.

In addition, the boat should carry the signal flags November and Charlie, which you can raise to signal a Mayday distress call. You will also need the boat’s national flag, and if you are crossing borders of different countries, you need a quarantine flag or a customs flag. Flags are an important part of the life preserver kit on a cruising yacht.

It is the skipper’s responsibility to equip the yacht with life-saving equipment. Any yachting school begins with the study of the boat’s safety equipment, fire-fighting equipment, and signal flags. Equipping the yacht with the rescue equipment or checking for it is done before you leave the sea so that you do not face an emergency on the boat without a set of necessary equipment.
