Lifejackets Need Love Too - Exmouth RNLI Lifeboat
Summer 2012 message from Sea Safety Officer, Peter Williams: Summer is nearly here and many of us have spent recent months preparing our pride and joy for the water. Polished, greased, anti fouled and with that extra gadget or new toy installed the summer sun and boating pleasure is eagerly anticipated. But lifejackets need some attention too. Lifejacket clinics run by the RNLI around the country show that around 30-35% of all lifejackets brought for inspection do not meet manufacturer’s specification or would fail to work when required i.e. in an emergency.
