annual lifejacket servicing (KRU)

General bits and bobs in London = Chas Newens Marine on Putney Embankment.

Speak to Julie Newens and she does a good deal. If she hasn't got it she'll get it in.

Alternative the one of the few other decent chandleries is Lindon Lewis Marine at Shepperton Marina. It's a bit more of a trip out of town though.

Second vote for Ocean Safety, have worked with them for many years and they offer a great service.

Not sure its worth the training for a small number of jackets per year but if you have hundereds then worth looking into the training.
