I always wear a lifejacket even when I am working on the Tug, I don'r really know whether to wear an Auto or a Manual. I tend to waer Manuals but I think I should really wear Auto's.

All in all I am in a Kwandree, about it. I would be interested to know what the Konsensus is

drysuit , auto & helmet cos I don't like salt in me eyes while driving.

(We do know someone who fell in off a RIB and didn't inflate his lifejacket cos he said it would save him 20 kwid.)
