Those suspender style are very dangerous in a high speed boat. You hit the water at anything over 40 mph and you will not be aware enough to pull rip cords even if you are still conscious. Your Skater is how fast? Plus they offer zero impact protection. Sort of like the the people complaining about wearing auto seat belts "wrinkles my clothes" "uncomfortable" "restricts my movement". I have fallen water skiing and it hurts at 40 mph. I have had many, many friends who drag race come out of a boat at only 100mph and they were always dazed and not aware of what happened while wearing a helmet and a Lifeline race jacket which is heavily padded.Originally Posted by The Menace
Lifelines or SRP poker run style at a minimum are what is needed.
