DOES YOUR LIFE RAFT NEED SERVICING / SURVEYED / INSPECTION?

As from the 1st January 2003 ?The International Sailing Federation? recommends all life rafts be serviced / surveyed / inspected by a manufacturer approved and certified company.
If your life raft is surveyed / serviced / inspected by a service station that is NOT APPROVED BY THE MANUFACTURER then product warranties may be void, any liabilities
may well pass to the owner and the owner will be putting all on board at risk. Manufacturers construct their life rafts to standards on the basis that they will be serviced / surveyed annually.

In New Zealand, contact the MARITIME SAFETY OFFICE in your area for a list of life raft stations and the brands of life rafts these companies are
approved to service / survey / inspect. www.msa.govt.nz Vacuum-pact type life rafts only require an inspection to determine if any moisture is present and if not the
repacker can just reseal the canister for the second & third annual inspection.

NOTICE TO OWNERS OF LIFE RAFTS.

Do not put your family, yourself and crew at risk. Have your life raft serviced surveyed inspected at least Bi annually.






NOTICE TO SKIPPERS / CAPTAINS.

Do you know your Skipper responsibilities.

Every boat, no matter how big or small, must have a skipper. The skipper is legally responsible for the safety of the boat and all the people on board,
and is also responsible for complying with all the relevant rules and regulations. Even though no licence is required to operate a pleasure boat in New Zealand,
ignorance of any maritime rules or regional bylaws is not accepted as an excuse. Carry at least two means of communicating distress on you, and for
boats under 6 metres, these need to withstand immersion.

Failure to comply will lead to fines or prosecution. If Death occurs with an Accident

Expect a jail sentence.

Passengers, freinds, crew, occupants always determine / ask who the Skipper / Captain is before venturing on the water in any vessel. Don't assume the owner is.
If you are asked to take the helm / steer the vessel make sure you have not been appointed as the SKIPPER and have a witness.
