i got a lifeline jacket.it is used but well taken care of.i got this thing for $100.then in the same town a guy had this wing for 150 obo and i gave him $100 for it.i think both where a very good deal.now that i got a good jacket its time to take the boat out and see what the changes do.if anybody needs a large size 42 lifeline jacket pm me.i will give you the guys number.he wants $250 for it.he has a bell helmet with straps and the thing that go's around your chest to hook to the helmet.i am picking that up next week on payday:)devil
i got the jacket from a guy in santa rosa named marty"skinny little guy".he ran a runner bottom sanger,then a red hydro.he said it came from a guy with the last name of hipwell i think.he said the guy passed a couple of years ago from a boat crash.they both used to run at cfw.marty got out of boats a couple of years ago.

Jacket

Your Lifeline Jacket is like any other piece of safety equipment. It must be maintained. Be sure and send it to Lifeline for a good cleaning and certification.

Great deal. When I looked at the pic I thought the guy had a big greasy beard.

He is indeed, I wondered what happen to him. I remember him and Cheri[sp] from Putah Creek. I know he had some health problems and I was afraid it might have caught up with him. Glad to know he is still well.

Your Hipwell would be the late John Hipwell, TFH driver. Passed away several years back now at Lake Yosemite in California driving Madness For Ron.
