This is what I have been doing (thanks for the tip last year Scottyt) but I go through a LOT of duct tape...I mean it gets really costly, even if I buy the 5 roll pack at Costco

Yes, used exactly that one with my girl, from ~ 3-10 years.

Here one from Defender

We had a clear deck, so tangles were not a problem. Clear, the child is still attended.

sorry for the high jack shawn.

as for the harness does anybody make a pfd for kids with a built in harness, or seen a strong lifting handle a tether could be attached to? doing a harness and a separate pfd seems like it could get annoying to all involved

I've also been hoping for Mustang or someone to manufacturer a inflatable PFD, with and without harness? The Mustang rep at the boat show last fall said its in the works...anyone heard any updates?

Might want to look at the Mustang series of PFDs. IIRC, CD likes them quite a bit...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Crewsaver "Seababy". That's what we use. I wouldn't have a life jacket on boardwithout an integral harness. In this case, the harness attaches to the back, so you can haul the tot back on board by main force if necessary.
