Default Finally a good PFD

I've been looking for a couple real good PFD's for the wife and I but couldn't see dropping $300-$500 for a life line to wear 3-5 times a year especially after I found out that they aren't CG approved. So after many months of looking at all the fisherman and PWC crap out there I think I've found a winner.....

Really!?!? $79, are you sure they didn't drop a 1 before that 79, that seems awful cheap, I have to go check that out!! Thanks for the info, at that price these guys will be getting a ton of business.

Have you bought one yet?

Its just because I love you guys and dont want you to drown.....I've lost one good friend in a boating accident and dont want to lose any more! I was just thinking back on last season and there was atl east 3 times I should have been in a vest, not counting all the high speed runs in flat water, thats just days in water over 3-5 foot seas.....now if I just pull my head out and wear it!!!
