Hi All,

There's a Tug Boat Skipper in the USA who has two YouTube channels. One for his Tug Boat operation, the other for his sailing yacht. He's posted what I believe to be a really very sensible brief on Liferafts, EPIRBs and GrabBags. Contains some real gems of practical safety. Stay with it - he's quite verbose!

If sailing or motoring away from UK, also waterproof bag with passports and as much as you think fit US dollars. Mebbe 250- 300.


Edit to add a few credit cards from different providers.

As one might expect, "grab bag" has come up many times in the past.

A quick search reveals

Grab bag

with lots of ideas and comments.


But that probably won't satisfy Seastoke.
