LIFE VESTS: Get a good, comfortable life vest and WEAR IT! A life vest does you little good stored on your boat, especially if you get tossed into the water and away from your boat. Accidents happen and by their nature, they happen when you are not prepared. A life vest can keep you afloat until you can rescue yourself or you can be rescued by others. In the worst cases when injuries or cold water are involved, your life vest can make all the difference! Be sure everyone onboard your boat wears a life vest too! Pass the word! Federal law now requires that all persons below the age of 13 must wear a life jacket while aboard a boat.
