Title: Marine Safety Equipment For Boating

Marine Safety Equipment For Boating
The safety equipment carried on a days outing
depends largely on the type of vessel that is
being used. Extra equipment is often required if
the sailing or boating is for more than a day.
Each country and sometimes individual states will
have a list of equipment that is mandatory for
the boat size and type.
Life Jackets/Buoyancy Vests There are numerous
brands available in most countries of the world.
If on a yacht, most sailors will have life
jackets ready at hand, but will not wear them
unless they are unable to swim or venturing far
from land. If this is the case then one of the
reputable inflatable life jackets would be the
most comfortable, and allow free movement on the
boat. It is essential to contact the maritime
authority in your country and state to enquire as
to the legal requirements for safety
equipment. Safety Harness/Lifeline These are
used to attach a person to a yacht. They are
usually made from flat webbing with stainless
steel attachment hooks. Some have two shackles
which makes it possible

for one to clip on to a new point before taking
the original shackle off. This ensures that one
is attached at all times. The breaking strain and
a testing inspection code will be sewn onto the
webbing. One of the shackles will be to attach to
the harness, the other to a strong point on the
boat. Many yachts will have "u shaped"
attachment points mounted in the most
practical position along the deck. Some yachts
have stainless or webbing lines set permanently
along the decks. If so, it is not usually
necessary to release a lifeline to move about the
boat. All of this equipment can be purchased at
reputable boating stores. Maritime Equipment
Requirements It is essential to contact the
maritime authority in your country and state to
enquire as to the legal requirements for safety
equipment. Some of these would be two anchors,
flares, two buckets with lanyards, an Emergency
Position Indicating Radio Beacon, a "V" distress
flag or banner, a heliograph (mirror) and two
torches just to name a few. Find here Best
