Ships log for the yacht "Sparrow" an Ian Anderson designed
'Hurley 20', sail no. 109, launched 16th November 1967.
This is the day to day stuff involved with owning and sailing a
small boat, so nothing earth shattering but there'll also
hopefully be some adventures along the way..

Life jacket servicing...

75% completed...

Both jackets survived the 24 hour inflation test with no issues - both as firm after the 24 as they were at the beginning..

Re-packing commenced..

On the downside, one of the bottles was showing signs of corrosion so I've gone ahead and ordered a new one - lesson learnt - this was in a life jacket I'd kept in the car since the end of last season - usually I store them inside...  it's been cold and damp, and this one has clearly suffered.

Time to pack them away..

New bottle should be with me some time this week..

Post edit: Now replaced - life jacket back online
