TRADE your old-style lifejacket for a new modern one at a discounted price at this weekend’s Hillarys Boat Show.

The Old4Newlifejacket campaign from Royal Life Saving Society WA and the Department of Transport is to promote the importance of boaters wearing lifejackets at all times when out on the water.

The new lifejackets are slim-line, self-inflating, not restrictive and comfortable to wear for a whole day on the water.

Boaters with old, damaged or obsolete lifejackets will be able to upgrade up to four per vessel for $50 per lifejacket at the show from April 8 to 10.
