Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

The proportion of responders who state they always wear/never leave the dock without wearing them is contrary to my observations during my 53 years on the water. I don't think I have seen 1% of people routenly wear them, this includes Coast Guard, DEP, and Marine Police. . My method is : 1. going offshore the jack lines are strung 2. only person on deck pfd/harness worn and clipped on to one of the padeyes in the cockpit 3. in any kind of weather going forward pfd/harness clipped to jackline 4 weather kicking up pfd/harness worn and clip on to cockpit padeye before you clear the companionway
