Common sense dictates where life saving gear should be stored.
We store our (6) Type-I life preservers, along with various other PFDs, in a large designated locker within the pilothouse. This location is easily accessed from any point on the boat-due to port/starboard sliding doors.
However, whenever we go offshore and sail from the aft deck helm, those big and bulky Type-I vests are moved to the (2) cockpit seat bench compartments - where they can be accessed within seconds, if ever needed.
Additionally, the crew always wears inflatable sospenders at all times, whenever sailing or motoring.
