Sticky problems

Hi I am coding my boat and we have been told to get a range of stickers some of which are location types and others are info etc.
Liferaftx1
First Aidx2
Fire extinguisherx4
No smokingx4
Water (drinking)x2
Fuel x2
Danger of Death or Serious Injury (What??????) to be positioned believe it or not on the transom by the enginesx1
How to make an emergency call ie Maydayx1
etc etc.
Last year we simply made them up but apparently they are now not acceptable and we have to have Manufactured ones in the correct colours and the correct sizes

Anyone able to help ??? please let me know by email or here
email is mike@bayblast.co.uk

You could try these people: http://www.safetylighting.co.uk/Products.htm . If you scroll down you'll find a section on 'Signage and Marking Systems' and on their home page they indicate that they can supply safety signage for ships. I just found them on the web so can't vouch for them! HTH

Signs

Mike,

I know that we have spoken in the past and if I remember rightly you are not in coded waters and due to your particular circumstances they are diff from the norm of coding.

Thus your requests I guess are from HSE or inland waterways and must not be confused with coding requirements.

Please call and I will explain.

Cheers

John

What we did was knock up a design in Word & take in to a local vinyl sign manufacturer that produced it in the stuff they put on vans. Try Yellow Pages for something like Signarama. Cost us about 15 or so

Same with me. Just gave the sign chap a list of words and had them done in PVC lettering. MECAL where more than happy with it. I have not heard of the colour requirements for MCA Small ship's coding for the lettering but I had yellow to go onto a dark blue background. Very clear etc.
As John mentioned it does sound more like HSE requirements. So where do you draw the line? On some Ribs I know I think 1 big sign saying Hazardous to Health do not board would suffice!!!!!
