Hammer Action Lifejackets

Hi Guys

I use a Crewsaver Hammer action (hydrostatic) lifejacket, I need to purchase 10 x 150N similar lifejackets

2 questions .....

1) Does anyone know the cheapest place to buy such quantity?

2) Are there any other makes apart from Crewsaver that make automatic jackets that work on Hydrostatic pressure and if so whats the price?

I dont want to get into a debate about the pros and cons of the various activation methods.

Ta

Pete

I did a bit of hunting around when I got mine and eventually got a set of these from the Marine Warehouse

http://shop.lifejackets.co.uk/acatal...ed_prices.html

the second set down is what I bought, they are Hammar action and come with a carry bag and a free recharge thingy, if you want 10 you might even get a further discount?

Very comfortable to wear in fact you really don't notice you even have it on after a couple of minutes.

Hi Pete, I got 150 Nt Hydrostati Jackets with SS safety eye for the line, they cost some €75 each from Union Chandlery in COrk Ireland
http://www.unionchandlery.com/ They were not Crew saver but they are very good, comfortable and slim with comfortable neck.
Girl I bought from is Rib Enthuasist, dont remember name, but I am sure these are no secret.
I have them in Holiday Mobile Home (awaiting new boat) so not too sure of name.
