We wear them on some of the runs, just depends on the congestion. We will wear them everytime on the new boat.

Absolutely. We do a lot of runs with PRA and as stated it is mandatory as it should be.

A month ago I came across a thread that detailed many of the serious boating accidents that have happened in recent years in North America. I knew of others that were not listed.
I spent that entire evening reading about the details of those accidents. It was a sobering read. There was no doubt in my mind that many of the results would not have been so tragic had life jackets been worn and the driver hooked up to his kill switches. Also a quality life jacket is well worth the investment. Safe boating to everyone !!

Everyone in the boat on runs. Everyone in the boat on the SF Bay. I don't want to loose any of my friends like that!
