Re: Bad yacht accident: two dead (one rescuer)

you need a "Gram" scale to weigh the CO2 bottles of the life jackets. Some have been known to leak out over a period of time. Weigh the blessed thing before installing it and then once every quarter or so. This also includes the spares you have stowed below and almost forgotten about.
