Safety Equipment on Boats

Hi everyone. My family and I have recently bought a boat and are having our first boating holiday soon. Does anyone have any hints for additional safety equipment to take onboard?

Remember that boats are pretty thirsty vessels. Make sure you have an idea of how far your boat will go on a full tank and carry enough spare fuel and means to fill up like a jiggler or good quality funnel. Running out of fuel in the water is no fun and a lot more dangerous than on the road. Always fill up at the earliest possibility and remember to keep plenty of oil on board for those two stroke motors!!

If you go on a boat ride take some rope incase someone falls in the water. Also take some food incase you get lost so you have food to eat, and take water too.
Thanks for your time Kat xoxo
