We wear PFDs all the time. And I hadn't really walked away, since the bimini is directly over the helm (see signature pic). I was in arm's reach of the wheel, but it was locked because the autopilot clutch was engaged. The clutch and outboard were both on the starboard side and I was on the port side, which meant I needed to climb to the other side of the boat.
