i were a pfd when i'm by my self when im with people i usally don't. I do have a pull cord pfd. But my boat is a 16' so it can tip. ive never had it tip because i don't want it to tip because it's so big so it would be hard to right. But i think this year i will be wering the pull cord pfd more instead of the regular pfd because i don't think the boat will tip exspecailly now that im comfortable with the boat.
16' mistral sailboat, And 27' coronado
