On the positive side, Tony lauded one particular abandon-ship kit, assembled by a young Finnish couple aboard the Pedrick 40 Marita. Honeymooners Kari Kauppinen and Melina Wigell-Kauppinen cheerfully showed off their buoyant plastic canister, which has the boats name clearly printed on it. With a drogue and a series of easy-to-grab looped lines attached to the exterior, the canister contains a hand-held GPS, plenty of batteries in a waterproof case, a hand-held VHF, routing maps, a 121 EPIRB (the primary 406 is aboard the boat), a survival blanket, survival food, a knife, sunglasses, a mirror, a book on emergency procedures, a roll of toilet paper, $50 (U.S.), passport copies, a sewing kit, flares, a small water maker, fishing gear and playing cards. The contents are organized into waterproof plastic containers. An abandon-ship list is posted clearly next to the companionway, with the names of all the crew and their duties in the event of a leave-taking.
