I read this story over at Crystal Blues BlogSpot http://svcrystalblues.blogspot.sg/2013/10/dangerous-liferaft-servicing.html and I would urge all to go there and read the original report about this cruising couple’s personal experience regarding Liferaft Servicing in Thailand.

06 Liferaft tape moving and cannister open

The tape was already coming loose, exposing the contents to the atmosphere. This was truly shoddy and unprofessional work, that had in fact cost a lot of money – over $1,400.00 !

Some absolutely reckless service standards on something that is a boat owners Last Line of Lifesaving when facing a perilous and life threatening situation.

I would say it is a MUST READ for anyone planning to have their Liferaft serviced in Thailand.

Beware of MCS at Samutparkam in Thailand.

Caveat Emptor.

A Must Read !
