Old4New Coastguard Lifejacket Upgrade
Water enthusiasts in Westland will get the opportunity to replace their old lifejackets for new Hutchwilco ones at discounted prices when the Old4New Lifejacket Upgrade Van visits in January 2019.
Coastguard recommends that lifejackets over 10 years old should be replaced as seawater, sun and general wear and tear impact their effectiveness. See www.old4new.nz or contact Coastguard 0800 BOATIE (0800 262 843) for further information.
