This vintage life ring measures about 30 inches wide by about 3 1/4 inches thick and weighs 4 1/2 pounds.  Both sides of the life ring have been photographed. The rear side of the life ring is painted Hao Yin Dao Panama. The “M/V” stands for Motor Vessel. Often life rings would be repainted when ownership of the ship changed.

This life ring is being sold in as-found condition.  It will have loose or missing paint. It has not been cleaned. The original rope is attached to the ring.  This life ring was removed from a working vessel being cut up for scrap, so it has seen many years at sea.
