Life jackets
  • Do we need to have life jackets re certified now? if so how long is the certification good for? I have read thru the opc rule book online and can not find any info about this... Where is this info available?

  • Good question....I'll probably be buying a new capsule jacket but my impact jacket hasn't been re-certified since I got it from lifeline 4 years ago

  •  let me take a swing at this!!

    i too looked through the rule book, and under helmets and life jackets in GSR rule 3. A-F, it says:

    F. every driver shall demonstrate that his life jacket will function properly when requested by the referee.

        so if i'm rite ? i believe it's the owners responsibility to keep your jacket clean,free of rips, functioning as designed by manufacturer.

      in short: there is no re-certification date.

        input welcome if needed.

    hey jeff, capsule jacket HHmmmmmm.   i have two for sale.

       see ya at the monthly meeting thurs. Donny
