Re: New West Marine Lifejacket?
One of the best is here from Mustang:
It is hydrostatic which is the best choice for someone sailing. The non-hydrostatic inflatables can inflate if splashed - a hydrostatic has to be underwater for it to inflate.
In Canada they are only approved if worn so it cannot be on the seat next to you as a conventional lifejacket can. Not sure about the US
