Child Lifejackets

Does anybody know if I can rent / lease children's lifejackets? I want to take the kids out on the rib during the summer hols in cardiff bay etc where it is really sheltered but knowing how quickly they grow I do not want to buy a toddler jacket only to have to buy another very soon. Safety is my first concern and I will spend the money if I have to I've been looking at the crewsaver spiral jackets @ appox 29 each (i'll need 2)

Any suggestions?

Also one of the little darlings have ripped the suicide seats cover.... you the scene just a little hole until he sticks his finger in and pulls off a huge piece of vinyl any ideas of where I can get it recovere in south wales without paying massive amounts. I'll post a picture later.

Most car upholsterers can do it - look in yellow pages etc. There is one in Swansea if you can't find any in Cardiff.

keep a lookout in Lidel for lifejackets - usually good deals on kids ones.

Don't know of anywhere that does this. I'd just buy what you need now and put them on eBay / RIBnet / Boats & Outboards when you're done. With the foam buoyancy type it's easy for someone to see if they are in good condition.

Never used them but a few people have said they were good. Be interesting to know how much they charge!!!

I have been using these for my kids in various sizes for 7 + years!

Great value for money at under 10 for the smaller ones!
