    LIFE JACKETS requred

    Hate to say it but is your life worth a second hand life jacket? Too many are sold that are faulty at boot shows etc. Anything over 10years old you should really think about replacing anyway. I have seen too many that have not been looked after or checked regularly and suffer accordingly Perhaps its time we had a lifejacket clinic at a club meeting, I am sure Mike & I can arrange to do it.

    Lifejacket check

    Whilst in the garage at the weekend I inflated mine. Still solid 2 days later, a check worth doing plus inspecting the cylinder for corrosion, ensure it is tight etc. I checked my safety knife was still sharp and the light was functional (damp towel across contacts). Easy and essential! Why not do yours!?!?! R

    Alderney 2018

    Depending on dates, I would like to put myself up for crew/ballast duties !?! A short Friday to Sunday ?? I’ve decided it’s all a bit too much for me to take my own boat ! I also understand that regulars will take first dibs , so no hard feelings if I’m overlooked ☹️ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Totally agree , three new life jackets are my very first purchase before picking up my new boat this weekend . Inshore flare pack next Vhf ( not sure if the old one will be any good after getting a little damp) etc, etc ,

    or add them for not a lot of money. A life jacket without one can assist in drowning you!

    A crutch strap is very important, make sure your choice has them.
