Yup, it's just a joint decision the Admiral and I made. To each their own, absolutely. The acid test will be when we are bebopping between islands in the BVI in 82 degree water with an 85 degree warm wind coming at us. We spent a lot time down there sailing without PFD's. It is an easy decision in the PNW with 47 degree water and swift currents. I think our decision to have the grand kids active on the boat with us as much as possible was our key decision point.
To each their own though. I get it.
