Well, I see two problems with this...
First, it would delay the inflation of the automatic release and make using the manual release very difficult. This means that he could possibly drown before the foulweather gear let enough water in to trigger the PFD's inflation cycle. Foul weather gear is designed to keep water out, is it not??
Second, it would pose a serious asphixiation risk to the wearer if the PFD does inflate.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
