I totally agree.The stupid part of the poll is that you have gone political... BTW G.W. Bush isn't the president, it is B.H. Obama and he is trying to turn the USA into the Socialist States of America.
And the most dangerous would be a collision at sea... Doesn't matter whatever you have hit.
Unless you are in a large working harbor, there will be NO fire boats coming over the horizon to save your burnt A$$. Carry twice the entinguishers required and learn how to use them, either by putting out fires in your backyard barbecue or going to Maritime fire school.How about fire. The only thing scarier to me than fire on a boat at sea is fire on an airplane in flight.
If the original post is intentionally worded then short-handed is the important aspect and then a medical kit is potentially only a small patch on a large puncture. Imagine breaking your leg in two places or even worse, a profound smack on the side of the head by a boom or similar. Now your wife (in my case the only other person on the boat) has to totally manage the boat because you are immobile? Your med kit ain't gonna help much. Splints? Yeah, right. In a heaving boat with limited medical resource that is my worst fear. By far.Not really a fear, but one of my biggest concerns is hitting or being hit by some unknown something. All the other things are known and avoidable, including having a well stocked med kit and knowing how to use it.
