Another very short Boatshed Brighton life jacket safety video - shows how easy it is to miss a tiny hole that may cause your jacket to deflate, just when you need it...Pretty vital info and we see examples of this at every RNLI life jacket clinic - take a few seconds to see what I mean and perhaps check yours? I'm on hand in Brighton, Shoreham, Newhaven and Eastbourne if you'd like yours checked - free of charge!
