We'll discuss the importance of assessing medication needs, choosing the right medications to stockpile, ensuring medication safety and storage, acquiring medications, maintaining supplies, developing medical skills, and dealing with medication shortages and emergency situations.

Assessing Your Medication Needs

To stockpile medications effectively, it's crucial to evaluate individual health conditions and the prescription medications required. Consider the potential risks and challenges of a collapse scenario and consult with healthcare professionals for personalized advice and prescriptions. Taking into account the advantages of mobility and adaptability offered by living on a sailboat, assess the medications needed for various health conditions.

Overall, a well-stocked first aid kit is an essential item to pack on your bug-out sailboat. With the right supplies and knowledge, you can be prepared to respond to a range of medical emergencies and help keep yourself and your crew safe while at sea.

Surviving World War Three at Sea

Guest article by Patrick Bryant

Nuclear TestGiven the current level of international tensions, it seems germane to write the following guide for my fellow sailors. This is a dark topic, and any optimism I express about surviving the situation goes against conventional wisdom. I am in no way attempting to diminish the horror and severity, but only hope that this guide will be printed out and stowed away aboard somewhere where it will never, ever be needed.

I have taken a lifelong interest in radiological defense and survival. I was licensed long ago as a radiological monitor by the old Office of Civil Defense at the age of 13. I have studied the topic thoroughly in the intervening 50 years. I hold the patent (US patent 4,103.235) on the audio tone that is sent by US broadcast stations during Emergency Alert System tests and warnings. I am also a Coast Guard licensed master (near coastal).

This is intended to be a BRIEF description, in layman’s terms, of radiological defense and survival at sea. Much is left out of this narrative in the interest of brevity, and the reader is encouraged to study the topic in greater detail. If the time should ever arise that you have a critical need for this information, I presume you will want tactics that are succinct and contain a minimum of academic information. Armed with any information at all, you will be better prepared than the vast majority of Americans, who have received no instruction on the topic. I have read the prepared scripts that will be broadcast in the event of any attack, and the only information you will receive from official broadcasts is: “fallout is a byproduct of a nuclear explosion.” That’s all – nothing more. The vast majority of casualties will not be caused by the explosions but instead by the radioactive fallout that follows. Our government simply expects us to die, while they hide away in the hundred or so bunkers provided only for them.
