|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.|

|PaulinVictoria||Well, I bit the bullet and got a Mustang 3153. Good price (for Canada), good bit of kit. Figured there wasn't any point trying to go cheap on such an important item.|

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.
So as long as you have an approved lifejacket for each person on board you may wear the inflatable PFD or not as you wish, whether it is approved or not.

|mitiempo||As far as I can tell from a terrible website - Canada's safe boating site - inflatable PFDs are ok by themselves. This was apparently changed in 2007. I could find nothing about having to wear them but it is suggested. On the Revere site they list approvals and they are all USCG and Canada is not mentioned anywhere I could find. So you could certainly own and wear one but they apparently are not approved for Canada. You would still have to have a Canadian approved lifejacket or PFD for each person on board.|
