Guys,
A while back there was a discussion on what items should be kept on a boat. I don’t remember if these two were on the list but I thought they would be good to have in an emergency. Good for hunting and camping also.

That bleedstop is a great idea. I have to take a blood thinner and I'll tell you what, bleeding is something that I'm really really good at. Unlike fishing, I am a world class bleeder. Well, I should have said catching, I'm a pretty damn good fisher too.

Yes, it is better to be over stocked and over prepared than not. I hunted with a surgeon who did not carry anything, and I kidded him about not even carrying rubber gloves. Just saying...RJS

Accidents happen so fast. I figured for less than $20 those two items are good insurance. My wife is my fishing partner. On a trip last November she was getting out of the boat when she noticed that the rope was wrapped around her leg. What she didn’t notice is while she was trying to free it she had one foot on the dock and one on the boat. The boat drifted and she fell in. She panicked and began to hyperventilate, the the inflatable PFD she had on only inflated on one side. The Velcro on the other side didn’t let loose. This put all of the pressure on the other side of the PFD which at this point somehow got under her throat and began choking her. I was able to calm her down and get her to hold on long enough to start the motor and get to shallow water so that she could walk out. She was okay just shook up.

Thanks. Two weeks later she slipped in the yard and heard a pop in her knee. She ended up having to have surgery for a torn meniscus. We think she originally damaged it when she did the split at the boat ramp.

Thanks for the tip Warren, I usually fish alone in my boat, but also take blood thinners. I'll add the bleed stop to my first aid kit.

I take blood thinners also Spirit and I’m pretty clumsy. I’m not a great fisherman. I enjoy it but my wife almost always out fishes me.
Gordon, I never thought about super glue. That’s a good idea. Better than Gorilla glue. Lol

I think I'll grab on of thise bleed stops today. The only blood thinner I use is baby aspirin, but I still bleed like a stuck pig.

So new question...How many of us take blood thinners? Count me in. Apparently a fishing requirement.
