How comprehensive a first aid kit do you put on safety boats?

Just get a small BS kit, will have whats needed in a neat box/ bag and chuck in a few spare 'space blankets'

Not the cheapest supplier to the 'public' but gives an idea of what the BS kit contains

little point to carry much beyond a  field dressing or  three and  some form of blanket in a safety boat ...   we've had previous  quite heated discussions in the past about  whether extrication boards should be carried on rescue boats  in the light of  some of the head and spinal injuries sustained in high energy  oopses ... 

I agree that a reasonable first aid  kit and  consideration of  resus kit  ( especially an AED)  ashore  should feature in the overall plan / risk assessment  especially if your  water  is remote from main roads and settlements .
