GRAB BAG CHECKLIST                                                                                                           

Hello fellow boaters, well the weather certainly seems to be improving day by day in the Hamble. Which is fantastic news for all us fair-weather sailors!

Just to say we spotted a good article in the April edition of Yachting Monthly, it's all about creating a ship's grab bag checklist. They've split the list into the Most Important and General items, and then whether they're essential or optional for Coastal and Offshore sailing. A really handy guide, and a good read.
So we've been inspired to write up a list of products we think you should consider for your ship's grab bag (Prices are correct at time of blog being published 25/03/2011).
Important Items to consider for your Ship's Grab Bag:
EPIRB/PLB (GPS enabled are best) - We'd consider:

Hand-held GPS + Spare Batteries - We'd consider:

Hand-held VHF radio + Spare Batteries - We'd consider:

First Aid Kit - We'd consider:

Important Items to consider for your Ship's Grab Bag:

Remember to check out the full list of essential grab bag items broken down by coastal and ocean sailing, it's a good read, and a good place to start building your own check list.
Have a good weekend everyone, we hope you can stop by to visit us in one of our chandlery shops, and we hope you can get out on the water.

Happy Sailing!
