Providing Abandoned Ship Bags in the Gulf of Maine

When you are out on the water things can change in an instant. Making sure you are geared up with buoyant abandon ship survival gear is essential, no matter if you are in the harbor of Casco Bay or if you are pushing out in the Atlantic shipping lanes. Abandon ship bags go by many names, ditch bags, bug out bags, emergency bags, etc. No matter what you decide to go with, it is essential to equip your vessel with an Abandon Ship Bag that has everything you need in case of an emergency. The safety equipment in your ditch bag is key to survival in the elements while waiting for rescue. Your ditch bag may need to be customized depending on the size of your boat and what your typical adventures look like.

Key elements to make sure to look out for in your bag structure specifically are buoyancy, reflective materials, waterproof materials, organization compartments for easy accessibility, and versatility.

Keep in mind some of these essential safety items when putting together your ditch bag.
