the inflatable PFD

I was single handing a couple of weeks ago, up to Milwaukee from Racine, WI. Actually it was the return trip. It was pretty calm, but I still hooked on when I left the cockpit. In these conditions, I usually disconnect the tether at my chest and just leave it attached to the jack line until I need it. I came back into the cockpit, pulled the lanyard to release my tether and to my surprise my PFD inflated. Whoops. Wrong lanyard. At least the PFD works.
