PaulinVictoria Well, if I race with anyone rich enough to have a boat worth entering into them, they can lend me a harness

jackdale Just thinking about Southern Straits, Swiftsure, Van Isle - great races,; all require harnesses. Anyways - enjoy the Martin. One of these days I would like to catch a ride on one.

PaulinVictoria Nah, don't plan on going anywhere a harness is needed. Not for a while anyway, and it didn't seem worth lugging the extra weight. I can always get a separate harness at a later date.

No harness?

Paul is racing. He may not want the hassle of two pfd's.

mitiempo I couldn't find that. Like I said, it's a terrible web site. But I doubt that one purchased in the US will carry Canadian approval tags.

Small Vessel Regulations (16.07)

Regulations Respecting Small Vessels

Quote:
(2) Subject to subsection (3), a personal flotation device may be of an inflatable type if
(a) it is worn in any open boat; or
(b) it is worn by a person in any boat that is not open while the person is on deck or in the cockpit, or it is readily available to the person when the person is below deck.
(3) A personal flotation device that is fitted with an automatic inflator shall not be used by a person on a sailboard.

Revere models 61068, 61069, 61070, 61071 are Transport Canada approved. http://wwwapps2.tc.gc.ca/saf-sec-sur...n/APCI_PFD.asp

So unless you have them on every time you leave the dock you still need regular life vests.
As long as you have a regular life vest for each person on the boat, you could still purchase and wear an inflatable when you wish, regardless of the US or CAN certs.
