I have been called obtuse on more than one occasion but I really don't understand why needlessly risk ones life. Then leave the burden of your death to your loved ones to pick up the pieces. I can't imagine if I fell overboard and because I was not wearing a PFD my wife could not haul me in on time to save my life. How would she feel because I did something stupid and fell overboard but yet she couldn't save me. I have also been known to do stupid things on occasion and it's not beyond the realm of possibilities to pitch myself overboard accidentally.

Ah, maybe it is just me.
