You are talking about your life.

Thats why i went out and bought six lifeline vests. I want everyone to be safe. Imagine if someone got hurt or killed becuase you didn't want to spend $300 on a vest. I never take more than 6 people on the boat when i go in the ocean.

Have the Lifeline vest become certified yet or do you still have to carry a bag of the special orange jackets

Fred,

Shot you an e-mail a week or so ago but think you were in the middle of your move. I'm ready to order 2 custom vests. Call me!

I certainly see your point, but that's $1800 worth of life vests!

And then do you need to buy some extras in different sizes so you have the right size depending on your guests? I see they come in Small, Medium and Large. That could really add up.

Lifelines are good, but so are SRP's
