Marine First Aid Kits
Like many forms of recreation, boating comes with the risk of injury. Sharp edges and hard surfaces can lead to scrapes, bruises and other minor wounds. When you're far from shore, it may not be possible to return to buy gauze or visit an emergency room immediately. Keeping a first aid kit on your boat can ensure you have supplies available when injuries occur.
At Fawcett Boat Supplies, we have been helping customers enjoy their time out on the water since 1948. We believe having the proper safety supplies is essential to making your boat trip enjoyable. Whether going out for the day or taking a longer journey, we have United States Coast Guard (USCG) first aid kits to serve your needs.

Choosing a suitable first aid kit for your boat depends on various factors. Also, being on a boat can change your first aid needs. Consider whether you're a daytripper or often take longer trips. Daytrippers can use first aid kits, which mainly treat minor injuries, while those traveling farther should have a boat medical kit with supplies to treat common illnesses and more severe injuries.
Another consideration when choosing a first aid kit is that it should be waterproof. Even if you store your gear in a safe place, it's more likely to get wet while you're at sea. You may also want to consider a modular design. These first aid kits sort supplies into separate bags based on the conditions they can address to help you find what you need quickly. Your kit should prepare you for:
