You horrible guys should not pick on her, being a well endowed miniature lady who farms sheep is bad enough without you picking on her....

We didn't do that, and wish we had. Oh well...

The wise old man in charge of things said just wear the life jackets, with whatever has the highest visibility on the outside. Not because it will make any difference in how long you live, but simply as a courtesy to those poor SOBs conducting the SAR operations, so they can find your body quickly and go back home again.

The logic still works for me. Someone thinks they're invulnerable, fine, no argument here. But they'd damn well better have the courtesy to make life easier on the SAR guys.

Oddly enough, when they hear "the only difference is how quickly we can recover your body" they start to question the invulnerability aspect as well.
Well and Wisly said.

But I put the information out there for people to know. It would be the last thing I would want happening in that kind of weather.

If you a fair weather sailor and can avoid the blow, that is great. I just want to be prepared for what if.

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

Ouch,

With a mustang it's a little more than a few bucks (about $75.00 the last time I checked).

Still a very good idea for a person to know they can rely on the equipment they are using.

Most people test them out when time to recharge. For a HIT Mustang, I think that is every 5 years.
