Ok figure it this way. When you send it to Lifeline in Parker, Az. to get it certified again it is new when you get it back from them. That's why they do it every 2 or 3 years.Just a preference I have, figuring I'll own my boat for at least 15-20 years and would you trust a 20 year old jacket with your life so I dont want to buy another one in 6 years, I just forgot to put an age limit on my post.
Someones happy,,,,That was a good deal ,like new )THumbsUp Wish it would of fit.
