Lifejacket Annual Service

Looking for a recomended service agent for Seago auto and manual lifejackets which I understand require annual service checks to comply with MCA codings. I operate from Hamble so anything Southampton, Portsmouth etc etc OR have I misread conditions and I can check them and sign them off.?

We use Cosalt ( http://www.cosalt.co.uk ) at work for all our lifejacket servicing, as well as other stuff like flares, liferafts etc.... I see you have one down in Southampton.

I use Cosalt too (in Edinburgh) and they've been great. Recommend them, no hesitation.

Two recomendations is good, what about lifejackets that are still a year old and have 3 year warranties, do they need servicing for MCA codes.

Like with the liferafts (except ISAF) my understanding is that despite the 3 year warranty/service interval the LJs need servicing annually. We use Baltic - on your doorstep in Ensign Way, Hamble

Maybe not for MCA codes (I don't work to codes for the UK) but certainly for good practice. In fact, on our salvage / standby fleet all lifejackets are serviced every 6 months by qualified in house personnel.

All our LifeJackets are serviced in-house. We paid for a gentleman from Crewsaver to come in and train a number of staff how to service them (We only use Crewsaver Lifejackets at work).

Annual / Baltic

Yes - annual service required irrespective of warranty.

Would recommend Baltic in Hamble. They need about 24 hours to carry out the service / inspection but appreciate the jackets being booked in a few weeks in advance.

Just to echo above, Cosalt or Baltic would both be fine.

Make sure you get a bit of paper with the LJ serial numbers to show it's been done.
