Lou kindly provided the following information about lifekackets which
may be useful..
Have spoken to Evan Starling in regards to waterways and life Jackets
Ev said you can order the bum bag life jackets from Outback online for
$48.00, Whitworths are selling the same item for $100.00 just letting
the Islanders know because the Maritime will be booking everyone from
this 1 November $250.00 for not having a jacket under a tinnie 4.8m if
you are driving on your own.
Happy boating Islanders.
P.S. the waterways have recommended this jacket to all this week so you
don't have to look like an idiot.
