Electronic Flare, Waterproof Case Plastic, USCG Boating Safety Kit, First Aid Kit, Whistle, Multi Tool

WindRider #ad - Whistle for help - per us coast guard rules you must have a noise making device. All stored in a wateproof case - we cut out the foam to fit everything nicely in a bright orange IP67 case that means it will keep your stuff dry and dust free.

With the combined flag, you are covered for all visible distress requirements. It even has a little lanyard - who doesn't like lanyards? Electronic flare - never expires - the sirius signal electronic flare is the perfect flare for your boat. Ever been cited by the coasties for an expired flare? Never again, as this flare never expires and meets USCG regulations. Open your beer - what safety kit is complete without a bottle opener? This multitool doesn't just open bottles, cutting edge, it has a screw driver, different wrench sizes, pretty much anything else you could need on you boat.

This little whistle does the trick. While not required by the USCG it is definitely a nice-to-have item. Safety first - for all those nicks and cuts and scratches we include a first aid kit. Oh and it will float too.
