Kiddo's life jacket

Just saw this on the specials on Sailnet: MUSTANG LIL' LEGENDS CHILD'S FLOATER VEST 30-50 L Shop.Sailnet.com - sailing resources, shopping, sail, blogs

Everyone knows I am a huge fan of these vests for kids (esp that cannot swim). Seems a good buy if anyone is shopping.

- CD

PS I do not work for Sailnet in any fashion... at all. DO not read anything else into it.

Maybe you should start treating him nicer or one day he might take out his old man!!! (smile)

PS Glen is about to move up to his next one (Chase's), and I would give you that one too, but it is kind of drenched by the sun and looking worn. That one I gave you was still pretty new!! Make sure you give it to another family... keep passing them on! Save someone $50!

Great point CD! Anyone have a child's PFD for our daughter up here? She'll start the season at ~15 pounds.

Maybe we should have a "hand-me-down" sticky...

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.

SD's right. From BoatUS's website:

How the Program Works:
BoatUS Foundation accepts about 40 new sites into the Life Jacket Loaner Program during each application cycle. The group or waterfront location accepted into the program will receive 12 child-sized life jackets, as well as signs, brochures and a sign-out binder. The life jackets should be displayed in prominent location—like near a boating ramp, in a marina office, or near a fuel dock. A boating family can then check out the life jacket for a day, free of charge. At the end of the boating trip, they can return it to the same location.

If you are interested in being a life jacket loaner site or would like additional information on the program please contact the program administrator at boatingsafety@boatus.com.

Something to remember when sizing your child's lifejacket, a fully saturated disposable diaper weights in about 4 lbs, so always add that to the childs actual weight (a 26lb kid should be wearing the 30lb jacket).
We started with the mustang but the boy found it uncomfortable and it was hard to get him to wear it, picked up a Salus vest and he will wear it without argument.
We keep the mustang vest on the boat in case he has a friend come along or for an impromptu visit.
The salus comes home with us as we require him to wear it on the dock as well as on the boat.

I have the Mustang PFD that CD gave me. We don't use it anymore..so if someone wants it, I will bring it back to the US on my next trip and send it to you.

It is stained with outboard oil, but that was CD's fault, not mine..

Still a good vest..who wants it??

CD what size is it, do you know??

Here is the kid from hell with it..
