Re: Do you wear a life jacket?

Our swim ladder is rigged so you can pull a light line from in the water and it unshackles and comes down. Right onto your head maybe, but it comes down.

While scuba diving with DavidPM, 50 feet from shore, we "tested" it. (Dinghy was there if it didn't work. Yes, it was an unplanned test.)

If anyone is interested I'll get a picture of the single-shackle setup and post it. (Having some laptop issues right now.)

Regards,
Brad
