Jeremy Dale, Managing Director of SeaSafe, comments, “Superficially a lifejacket can look fine and appear in good condition but it could be hiding all kinds of defects. We have had lifejackets back here with heavily corroded CO2 gas bottles, loose or detached gas bottles, lungs that are damaged with rips, tears and holes, used and never re-armed lifejackets, operating mechanisms with missing parts and many other critical problems. The key thing to remember is that a lifejacket is only that if it works, and if it’s never been serviced or not regularly serviced then it really isn’t worth taking a chance – better to be safe and not sorry. “We have seven Service Points on the island but aim to have more over the next year and with this in mind it made sense to purchase the new van so we can offer an improved, faster turnaround.”To find out more about this service contact SeaSafe on 282388 or visit their website at: www.seasafe.co.uk.
