RNLI spec Crewsaver Lifejacket

I have for sale a new and never worn Crewsaver RNLI specification lifejacket as issued to Atlantic Rib crew.
This is a civvie spec jacket the only difference being it does not RNLI written upon it.
Looking at the crewsaver website it looks as if this jacket is now only available to the RNLI and can not be privately purchased.

No marks or damage.

175 if you collect (Surrey/Sussex border)
195 incl P & P.

Spec from RNLI below...
This jacket is based around a full yachtsman harness and comprises of:

a: A zip fastener at the front of the jacket, a waist band secured via a buckle and thigh straps secured with plastic male and female clips.

b: A lifting strop is attached to the waist band and held in position with Velcro.

c: Reflective strips around the chest that extend up to the shoulders and around the back of the head when the jacket is inflated.

d: A yacht harness attached to a steel D ring.

e: The inherent buoyancy of the jacket comprises three compartments of foam cells which provide 85 Newtons of buoyancy.

f: A manually operated gas cylinder inflates a single stole. When fully inflated the jacket provides 224 Newtons of buoyancy.

g: An oral top up facility is provided on the top left hand side.

h: A battery operated light which is activated by a toggle is fitted to the left hand side.
(Note: The battery lasts for approximately 8 hours with continuous use)

i: A whistle is provided in a pouch on the right hand stole. The pouch also contains a rope buddy line.

j: A personal flare pouch (one of two) with velcro cover. Contains a string flare attachment line with rubber O ring.

Hello Chaps

Silly question but just wondered where the lifeline is stowed inside the lifejacket? I see that both ends are clipped onto the 'D' ring but I assume the slack is stored in a sleeve inside it so if needed it can just be pulled out? Just wondering!!

You have little velcro tabs that run on the inside of the jacket, these come undone easily when needed.

When I say inside I don't mean where the bladder is I mean the inside as in what would be next to your dry suit.
