Medical Kits for Coastal Cruising
Adventure Medicalís Marine 1000 covers most emergency first-aid needs for near-shore sailors.
Practical Sailorís review of medical kits designed for coastal cruising is the second in a four-part series on on-board first-aid. The first part reviewed medical kits for daysailing, while this one examines medical kits for boats with a crew of one to four people where help may not be available for up to 12 hours. Practical Sailor examined the contents, packaging, instruction manual, and organization for four kits: Ocean Medical International (OMI) Class C Day-Tripper, Adventure Medical Marine 1000, Fieldtex Excursion, and Orionís Open Ocean. Marine 1000 met most of the content requirements we deemed necessary for coastal cruisersí needs, and it excelled at the organization.
