Re: Lifejacket Type Code Labels Go Away (BoatUS article)
Oh no, say it isn't so! Does this mean I have to replace my wonderful, classic kapok life jackets? They've served me so well for over 50 years and they hardly absorb any water at all. Well, perhaps a tad more than they should, but hey, what's a little bit of water when you're bobbing around in the middle of an ocean, waiting for rescue?
