Jim H. It's a done deal! The wife and I got finished yesterday with Cruising certification and LiveAboard Certification in Charleston! Was a wonderful experience!
Started the week on a 33ft (brand new) Hunter. Finished the week (last 3 days)on a 44ft Hylas! I was amazed how easily we were able to move around the Marinas with those big boats. I guess training is the key to the whole deal!
Anyway, just wanted to share that we are BROKE, RUINED and totally HOOKED now! Can't wait for the next adventure.....a hole of our own, in the water, in which to throw more money!!

Charleston SC Sailing School
Could you provide me with any information on the sailing school in Charleston S.C.? I have been planning to take some classes to expand my sailing horizons. Thanks

While inflatables are far more comfortable, they do have much higher maintenance and repair costs, compared to foam PFDs. For most of my guests, I have Type I Foam PFDs, which are better for the rougher waters I generally sail in, but also have two Type V type PFDs, which are for me and and select guests.
Just remember that Type V PFDs must be worn to be counted in USCG inspections.

I just thought it might be cool. We have the SOS inflatable and I have a waist inflatable I ware on my small flying scott. I just thought it would be good for guests if it was cool. Thanks for the information. Different sports different equipment needs...

It looks like it will be cooler to wear, and most of the serious sailors we know on the river seem to wear SOSPenders, even though the harness is a bit of overkill for inland sailing most of the time. I like the idea of something light and cool enough to wear year-round, pretty much all the time, to set a good example for the kids.

My wife and I did our ASA's together. The instructor only had one rule which I totally agreed with. At no time was I to tell my wife what to do. It was great because too often she depends on me when she knows exactly what needs to be done. Anyway we've been together for 33 years, but it wasn't sailing that was the test it was wallpapering. :-))
My question, in the post your wife seems to have a prety "cool" life jacket on. I don't think I have seen one quite like it. Is it a PFD and is it as "cool" and comfortable as it looks?

|sailingdog||LOL, being Broke and Ruined, but sailing is not all that bad a place to be.|
