Wear a life jacket In the news, 2 Darwin Candidates on a jet ski ran aground in the Delaware River and were ejected. 1 saved by passing vessel, the other is a candidate for the Darwin Award when they find his body. Did these people ever hear that nobody ever drowned wearing a life preserver.
Typical life vest; yes. there are as u know life jackets designed to keep ur head above water even if unconscious. Not the most comfortable but at least u won't be dead !
True, but has anyone ever seen someone on a jet ski wearing anything but a Type III?
The other issue with Types I and II for water sports is they aren't speed rated like some (most, nowadays) Type III's.
On the topic of PFD types - I've noticed almost all of the inflatables I've seen lately are dual certified Type III and V. With a Type III certification, they shouldn't need to be worn to meet carriage requirements.
My signature line is cooler than your signature line.
