Mustang Survival Offers Free Inflatable PFD Inspection Service at the Vancouver International Boat Show

BURNABY, BC – As the official personal floatation device (PFD) of the Vancouver Boat Show, Mustang Survival is happy to provide free onsite inflatable PFD inspection services to all boat show attendees. Inflatable PFDs should be inspected and maintained regularly to ensure they are in good condition. Boat show attendees with questions about the maintenance or re-arming of their PFD are encouraged to come by the Mustang Survival booth #265 to speak with product experts. Additionally, Mustang Survival will be giving away a free M.I.T. 100 Inflatable PFD at the show. Stop by for details on how to register.

“We want to help boaters ensure their gear is in good working condition,” says Brian Milligen, Director of Canadian and International Sales at Mustang Survival. “This free PFD inspection and maintenance service will include a visual inspection, inflation test and installation of any required replacement components that will be available at discounted prices through our retail partners here at the show. It’s really a great opportunity to learn more about the gear you are entrusting with your life.”

Mustang Survival will also be showcasing its comprehensive line of flotation and climate protection solutions for recreational and professional mariners at the show including the newest addition to its line of inflatable PFDs, the M.I.T. 100. This PFD features Membrane Inflatable Technology™ inside to reduce product weight and create a lighter and more flexible fit. Field tested and approved with a rating of 9.5/10 by the North American Fishing Club, the M.I.T. 100 is receiving a thumbs up from recreational and commercial mariners alike.

Members of Mustang Survival’s Research & Design team will be onsite conducting inspections at Mustang Survival Booth #265, BC Place, January 22 - 26, 2014.
