Agreed 100%. Those inflatable PFD's won't do any good at all at the speeds (and conditions) he's running. After all, what could possibly go wrong?

If you hammer it to get on plane, you're stressing your drive. Taking it easy getting up on plane reduces that stress and thus wear. That said, you can baby the hell out of it getting up on plane,...
