Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

It's still a really good consideration. I am kind of leaning toward the Mustang or something equivalent for that reason.

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

Yeah, I was thinking that if we're all comfortable in the same brand vest, it would be best so we could keep the same re-arm kits and use them for whatever vest we have if anybody falls in. A re-arm...

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

My husband has a reasonable (not million though) life insurance policy that will take care of us if he falls off the boat and drowns, however I'd much rather have him around. I talked to him and he...

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

Thank you Maryt. That helps quite a bit.

Thank you also dongreerps. I'll talk to my doctor next time I go in and start leaving a paper trail. I certainly have struggled with back issues my whole...

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

Ok, so that helps a lot. You're right, I'll visit the Portland WM store and talk to them. I totally get what you're saying about comfort being #1, because a life vest you aren't wearing doesn't do...

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

So the West Marine lifejackets are made by Mustang? Or some of them are?

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

Thank you for the tip! That looks like a pretty decent price. How does this compare to the Mustang brand ones? Is it worth the extra $$ to get a Mustang?

I think I'm going to need one for me and...

Re: How to secure a baby

Having had a water birth... I can't imagine anything more uncomfortable than giving birth in a tub of cold water. Just sayin'. :)

Re: Mustang Lil' Legends Child Life Vest

I agree, for swimming I think a child is better off, well, learning to swim.

We went sailing on a friend's boat for 4th of July and my daughter seemed quite comfortable in the vest. In the...

Re: Refurbish or scrap?

Yeah, after talking it over we've more or less decided to keep the outboard. If we are going to do anything more than occasional coastal cruising (which we probably won't even do a lot of that) we'll...

We searched for one, but couldn't find any. We'll create one if we need to, of course.

Re: Refurbish or scrap?

Thanks for the input! The boat is a 1970, so yeah it's pretty old.

We have been going back and forth on whether to do an inboard engine or not. If we do, it will absolutely be a diesel. The...

Yes, the husband is thinking about getting a stainless steel pipe for the job. He has a welder and can do stainless steel or aluminum welding. I don't know what exactly the structural support is made...

Re: Refurbish or scrap?

Just an update... we spent the day scrubbing out the inside of the boat. It came clean relatively easily considering how much grime was in there. Looking rather nice! And it gave us a chance to...

Re: Mustang Lil' Legends Child Life Vest

Well, so far so good with the wearing it part. I tried it on to make sure it fit and then she threw a tantrum when I tried to take it off. She wore it around the house for hours. :)

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

It looks like most of their jackets are designed for Kayaking, though. And, from the company website:

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

MarkSF: Yeah, I've told him all that. Actually, he may be more willing to wear the vest because we'll be sailing in cold waters. He's not stupid. Just... set in his ways. And 90% of his boating...

Re: Refurbish or scrap?

I'm sure you're right. My husband has quite a lot more experience than I do, though still not nearly as much as all of you I'm sure. At least when it comes to sailboats. He has never owned a...

Re: Refurbish or scrap?

That's a very important question. We ARE looking for a project. We WANT to refurbish a boat. The question is "how much?"

My husband is retiring at the end of the summer and needs something to keep...

Re: Life vests for the well-endowed

Good tips, guys, thanks!

Re: Refurbish or scrap?

You could very well be right, and that's the first thing we'll do before spending any money or significant time on it.



My biggest concern is spending a bit of money on another boat that...

Meh. The same picture is on Facebook for all to see. And I've developed a pretty thick skin over the years.
