I wear my life jacket anytime I'm running over 50 mph,poker run or not. I always wear my safety tether except when idling.I was surprised that no one really was wearing any life jackets at hardy pond/hot boat shoot out this year. We raced a few boats into the upper 80 mph range that had no one on board wearing them and when talking to some of the people they were refering to us as "the people wearing their life jackets in the baja" ,Smitty

Everyone that rides in my boat always wears a PFD.
The thing is, unlike some of us on this board, I don't have the crystal ball to let me know when there is going to be an accident!!!
