HOW TO WEAR A LIFEJACKET

A popular U.S.-based cruise ship style

A popular European ferry style

Several times during the year NAUTICAL LOG has had visitors searching for lifejacket instructions. With two just over Christmas we decided to publish something for everybody to see and read.
  1. Choose a Coast Guard approved life-jacket and make sure it is undamaged.
  2. Make sure life-jackets are readily accessible, never locked away.
  3. Check the fit, there are adult, child and infant sizes, the correct one MUST be used.
  4. Choose bright colour life-jackets so as to be seen easily by Search and Rescue (SAR).Put your life-jacket ON BEFORE you leave the berth.
  5. Make sure you have a light and whistle attached AND they BOTH WORK.

Good Watch
