Hammar MA1 Inflator - The Hammar system is activated by water pressure and will not inflate until the cap is approximately 10cm underwater.

Benefits of the Hammar system include:

  • Will not accidentally inflate in very wet conditions
  • Cylinder is glued to firing head so will not work loose
  • Single indicator clearly shows if the unit is armed

 The lifevests are 170 Newton, medium size (29” to 49” chest), numbered 1-6

 The lanyards are attached to the lifevests by a soft loop, not a metal clip, PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE THEM so that one lanyard always stays attached to each lifevest.

Your SEA SCAMP Skipper will explain the operation of the lifevest during the Safety Briefing at the start of each trip.  It is recommended that crew members familiarise themselves with them before sailing by viewing these videos.
