Re: Recommendations needed - baby/infant PFD and harnesses

I do. I have the same issue with our Spinlock deckvests. The material is very soft and we get very little complaints from the grandkids about them. We were most concerned about about the infant and after seeing the results of the RNLI testing with wet diapers there was doubt in our minds.

You can say what you want about the Brits but they are fanatics when it comes to their standards in boating safety.

I think the biggest factor in getting the kids to wear them though is a policy that everyone wears a PFD, adults & kids, always. (I know that sounds self-righteous)
