Life Jackets, Lifebuoys & Survival Gear

Life jackets, lifebuoys, and survival gear are all important safety equipment that should be on every boat.

  • Life jackets are designed to keep you afloat in water. They come in a variety of styles, including inflatable, foam, and hybrid. The type of life jacket you need will depend on the size of your boat, the type of boating you do, and your personal preferences.
  • Lifebuoys are a type of floating device that can be thrown to someone who is in the water. They are typically made of a buoyant material, such as foam or plastic, and have a rope attached so that they can be retrieved.
  • Survival gear includes items such as flares, whistles, and first-aid kits. This gear can be used to signal for help or to provide basic medical care in the event of an emergency.

In addition to life jackets, lifebuoys, and survival gear, there are other safety items that should be on every boat. These include:

  • Fire extinguishers
  • First-aid kits
  • Flares
  • Whistles
  • Distress signals
  • EPIRBs (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons)
  • PLBs (Personal Locator Beacons)

It is important to make sure that all of your safety gear is in good working order and that you know how to use it. You should also review the safety procedures for your boat and practice them regularly.

Here are some additional tips for keeping safe on a boat:

  • Wear a life jacket at all times when you are on the water.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and the weather conditions.
  • Stay sober while boating.
