Australian Sailboat Safety Gear
I'm setting up my Spacesailer 20, a 6.2m sailboat, with the required safety equipment
and need to know what I have to have to be compliant.
I am setting up for 'offshore' compliance as I expect to do some minor offshore
What do I need?
- PFDs (I Have)
and chain (I Have)
- 4 Flares (2 Day & 2 Night)
- Fire Extinguisher (Size?, A-B-C Type?)
- V-Sheet (Best Source?)
Label (How do I determine the 'maximum number of people to be carried'? Is there an alternative to the table on the back of the Decal?)
- VHF/HF Radio
- Bilge Pump
(Manual or Electric)
Where is a good source for these items? I have used BCF to buy some items, but their prices are not always the best.
