Check your lifejackets!!
As per the title. Please take a minute to check over your lifejackets if you have not done so recently. I'm normally quite thorough on checking things like this frequently but with having a new baby this year and various poor excuses I haven't looked at them for a few months.
I did another Sea Survival course for work yesterday and it reminded me to check my lifejackets. - 2 different makes, all different ages and amounts of use / lack of use.
All four lifejackets were failures!!
2 had cylinders that had fully or partially unscrewed, 1 had fired at some point and must have been sneakily been packed away without anyone telling me, 1 had the green cap missing off the firing head.
