I am with SD on this one.
Throwable cushions are not approved PFDs in Canada. I think that says something about their viability.
Sitting on any PFD is not recommended as it crushes the material.
Underway - PFDs should be worn. At least keep one in the cockpit and teach people how to put one on in the water.
