Small boats vary in type and size; they are divided into classes. For each vessel, a standard minimum set of supplies and equipment is defined, which is recorded in the ship’s ticket. GIMS rules prohibit the use of vessels not equipped in accordance with the rules.
Useful tips for picking
Rules and regulations are not invented in vain, so the supply of small boats should be taken seriously. Even small emergency situations can lead to devastating consequences. It is worth noting that the fire on the ship, especially if the water is cold, nowhere to run. Therefore, the fire set in accordance with the class of the vessel will be a certain insurance against the fire element.
There is no doubt about the relevance of individual means of rescue, such as life jackets, circles and ropes (lines) in swimming conditions. If the hull is damaged, the means for pumping water – from the simplest scoop in a rowing boat to the powerful bilge pump of the deck vessel-will help to stay afloat.
As mandatory equipment specified in the rules fixture for anchoring and fixing the ship’s anchor, a rowing boat — butt-ring, for other categories the eye (roller) or a duck-eye. The supply list also includes mooring and towing ropes, anchors and hooks.

- Antiseptic solutions, powders and ointments;

- Aerosols from burns;
- Bandages, bandages and tourniquet;
