And they will turn you face up in the water if you happen to be unconscious.
That's what I'd heard, and I know everyone swears by them.
I have limited space for storage in my boat, and I'm only gonna wear a vest when I'm running hard (but lanyard all the time).
Does the CG/water patrol give you any hassle if you have these on board if inspected? I guess what I'm asking is, let's say I have me and the wife, and two guests on board. I have two orange standard issue PFD's for my guests, and I have two lifelines for me and the wife. Although I'm technically not compliant, (No Cert on the LL jackets) am I gonna run into a PITA with the fish cops?
Let me say, I'm just asking questions. I understand this is probably the best way to save your life in a bad situation, But in a normal day boating with no unexpected occurrences, if I'm boarded am I gonna run into problems with the fish cops?

bouyhunter, I have never heard of any problems with any type of law enforcement concerning the use or having Lifeline jackets aboard as PFDs.

I'm in for at least 2 probably more.

Canadian Coast Guard regs are more strict than US regs - you must have a CCG vest for every person on board - and at last summer's poker run they didn't even raise an eyebrow.

Just FYI.

Since every other PFD on the planet is CG ceritfied, I doubt it would even occur to any officer to check for the cert. That is, unless he's a performance boater .

Yeah, but it'd just be my luck to get cited.
I'd rather have my wife and I alive if there were an incident, than to have us checking out Davey Jones locker and be within regulations.
