Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

I was recently 5-10 miles off the coast in the Gulf Stream off Miami. On a crew of 4 plus a 'captain' for 6 days sailing in the ocean coatal cruising i was the only one wearing a Pfd. I don't know why the others don't wear one.... I wear it like I wear my pants...it's an automatic given. I have too many people who love me not to take the simple precaution of a Pfd- same reason I wear seatbelts in a car--- for them. Now, if I was alone in life I would not care and I would not wear one. I wear it for others... Not me. Those who don't wear one tend to be loners who are not responsible to anyone. But if you love someone then wear the friggin Pfd already. Just sayin.
