Safety & Survival

For many of us, one of the best things about being out on the water is getting away from it all. But that also means that you leave help farther away in case of an emergency.

At TackleDirect, we provide products that help you help yourself. Our marine safety and survival products will help you prevent problems. They also can save lives and property in the event of an emergency. Don't think of these items as accessories. They are necessities. Everyone who ventures out on the water should have them.

We carry products that will help keep you out of trouble, such as cruising guides, charts and maps. These are handy resources for browsing and a great backup should you lose your power or have your GPS malfunction. Our fire extinguishers can prevent small fires from becoming big ones. We also carry life rafts in case you have to abandon your vessel at sea as well as first aid kits for dealing with medical emergencies on board.

TackleDirect also stocks all the survivalist products required by the U.S. Coast Guard, such as life jackets and PFDs. We have wearable life jackets that keep you and your crew comfortable and safe as well as throwable devices you can use to rescue a man, woman or child overboard. In addition, we carry convenient vinyl stowage bags. These will keep your PFDs safe, secure, dry and out of the way but easily accessible.

You'll also find flares and signaling devices here that can summon quick help in an emergency. Our lineup of signaling devices ranges from simple whistles that are perfect for smaller vessels to advanced EPIRBs and other electronic devices that can automatically provide your location to rescuers in an emergency.
