Phillip, we have used Ocean Sailing Academy for all our course work. Very nice people with great experience. However, the Hylas we used was not in the best condition. I complained a bit for the first time. Overall, they have been great.
They are located at the Charleston Harbor Marina (with the Hilton) next to Patriot Point. Hope that is of some help to you.

Regards,
Pilot

Done Deal

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!!

Cheers,

Pilot

sailingdog 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.

Valdare Thanks Jim,

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...

We both have kayaking PDFs that we still wear, since we recently had kayaks before sailboats. The model she's wearing was from REI, and was optimized to be short in the waist area, and have somewhat thicker padding in the back above the kayak seat.

They're comfortable to wear, but they are a bit warm for summer use. I just bought her a West Marine SOSPenders/harness model off of ebay, lightly used, auto and manual inflate for $100. 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.

Valdare Jim,

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?

PBzeer Might be broke, but if you're afloat, you're far from ruined! Always great to see people going for their dreams.

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