Re: 1st Aid at Sea & Important Like Items to Carry

smurph, I'd only argue that what you are calling a first aid kit, is what I learned is best NOT called a first aid kit. The first aid kit is a little thing in opne reach that dals with booboos.

The BIG kit that has the splints and bandage compresses and all the "damn I'm gonna faint" stuff in it? That's a "trauma kit". Honest, you'll find a lot more of the more appropriate stuff if you look for them under that name.

First aid kit? $9.99 at WallyWorld, 510 pieces including 110 bandaids, four by three packets of pain relievers, coupla sting-kills...that's what you get all the hits on.
