Almost ready....

The list of jobs is finally dwindling in concert with the bank balance!
I am setting Rogue Wave up for IRC/ORCi and at this stage will start with a core crew of six. Being very safety minded I need to ensure my gear meets the required AYF standard. Outfitting to CAT 1 safety is an expensive process to say the least. Some of the quality of these so called approved items leaves a lot to be desired, so I am selective with my purchases.
PFDs will be Burke manual Inflatables with integral harness and tethers fitted with SOLAS approved automatic lights. This should provide piece of mind offshore.Only a few more safety items to go to be CAT 3 compliant and then onto the most expensive...HF radio for CAT1.
