Trailer boating - lifejackets - video transcript

Andrew 'ET' Ettinghausen: Whenever you go boating there must be a lifejacket for everyone on board ready for use. As the skipper it's your responsibility to make sure everyone on board knows how to put it on and when they'll need to wear it. You must wear a lifejacket when you're crossing a bar but it's also recommended to put one when you're boating alone, When conditions start to get rough or when you're a long way from help. And when it comes to young children you just can't take a risk. Encourage them to wear a lifejacket when ever they're on the deck and especially when the boats underway. Just wear it!
