Boating season is here and emergencies don't stop while on the water. It doesn't matter if you are at a local lake or on the ocean you should have a good first aid kit with you. You man be minutes from help or hours away. This is why we came up with the IV888 Boat Kit with a ton of input from Eric at IraqVeteran8888.
We used the Nanuk case which is cheaper priced than other cases but is a great quality case. The Nanuk 904 case is crush proof and floats! This makes it the perfect first aid kit to use on your boat!
