In any case I think to have a warranty claim honoured (I assume these are the seago ones you mentioned) , seago require the lifejackets to be services annualy.

Very cryptic Mike ..... is there something here that we should all know??? If it's simply a private comment specific to one person, that's fine of course - but if it's a general point about coding and lifejacket servicing, is it something you can share?

lifejacket

hi, sorry didn't want to be cryptic but I had a different experience with my lifejackets.
All new last year in May,I did a thorough health check by inflatin them and inspecting for corrosion, stitching etc etc. Then noted the serials in my log.
My coding annual summary stated "service or inspection date" and I recalled a pone chat last year with mca who advised the insepction was fine. At this point I moved on to the next job.
When I read this thread I thought oh bXXXgger more cash .
I am aware of the long awaited coding harmonisation So to clarify I called my coding agent who advised that the 'harmonised code categories'may not have been legally implemented but the safety reccs have gone out to his and other coding authorities and that the relaxation of annual service to annual or more frequent inspections by a competant person with at least 1 service within 3 years does apply now. This is assuming your coding agent goes with the new and not the old which has been discussed before here. Anyhow I am happy, I do appreciate safety is paramount but to be frank was pleased with this change.
Its an area of confusion but all I said on my personal mail its worth a call.
I also called mca who confirmed my position.

regards
