Re: Most Important Safety Equipment
A serious first kit along with the training required to use it.
A good ditch bag.
Clothing appropriate to where you are going. Hypothermia will get you and you will not even know it is happening. We are looking at immersion suits for our trip to Labrador next summer. The liferaft is not much use if the water and air are very cool.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
