Check or renew your lifejackets at Old4new van visit
Northland boaties will have the opportunity to check and upgrade their lifejackets when the Coastguard’s Old4new Lifejacket Upgrade campaign returns to the region this summer.
Last summer the Coastguard took the campaign to several Northland sites, but this year logistics mean it will only come to Whanga¯ rei, at Marsden Cove Boat Ramp, Marsden Cove Marina from 3pm on December 1.
From December 1, the Old4new van will visit popular boat ramps and key locations nationwide, giving boaties the chance to bring in their old, damaged or out-of-date lifejackets for a discount on new, quality Hutchwilco lifejackets.
This year the Old4new van will go to new locations, including Taranaki, and Haast, Franz Josef and Hokitika on the South Island’s west coast.
For those who can’t get to the Old4new van, Boating and Outdoors is once again offering the Old4new trade-in deal at its stores nationwide during specific weeks of the campaign.
Since the inception of Old4new, more than 10,000 old or damaged lifejackets have been traded in. For a full location schedule visit www.old4new.nz or contact the Coastguard on 0800 BOATIE (262 843).
