Check or re­new your life­jack­ets at Old4new van visit

Whangarei Report - - NEWS / SPORT -

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pop­u­lar boat ramps and key lo­ca­tions na­tion­wide, giv­ing boat­ies the chance to bring in their old, dam­aged or out-of-date life­jack­ets for a discount on new, qual­ity Hutch­wilco life­jack­ets.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 or con­tact the Coast­guard on 0800 BOATIE (262 843).
