Manmitch,

Another great vid.

One thing...if I may. I notice in your video that it looks like at least one guy (in the bow position) wasn't wearing a PFD. The fella in the middle is wearing it, but incorrectly. Open lifejacket can be more of an impediment if you suddenly end up in the water. Nothing like a PFD up around your head while you are trying to swim. Useless if you are unconscious.

Don't want to be preachy, but hope in the future your videos will not only show great fishing. Proper boating safety would set a great example.

Truly enjoy your videos, though. Hope you take my comments in the right way.

That little fish at the start of the video looks more like a salmon smolt than a brown trout. Browns do not have vertical bars on their sides.

As long as there is 1 pfd for each person on the boat, they are. Right? I rarely wear my life jacket, and I'm not breaking any laws by not doing so.



Anyway, nice video.

You are only breaking the law of common sense by not wearing a pfd. Wear one and after a while it will be second nature.
It is very hard to put one on when you are in cold water.

Rad,

It's not about breaking the law. The laws dumb. If you aren't wearing your Lifejacket or PFD on or near the water...it's useless.

Give this a read: Wearing life-jackets on a boat should be mandatory, groups say - http://thechronicleh...tory-groups-say

Even Transport Canada, who's mandate includes Boating Regulations and Safety, and by who the "Law" you mention is regulated suggests:

Lifejackets & PFDs
Research has shown that unexpected immersion in water can place a boater at serious risk if they are not wearing a flotation device to assist them in those first moments. This is true regardless of the experience of the boater, the nearness to shore and even swimming ability. The body's reaction to the surprise of going overboard and the shock of cold water can profoundly affect breathing, nerves and muscle strength. Wearing a lifejacket gives you time to adjust to the emergency and allows you to assist others.

See: http://www.tc.gc.ca/...s-menu-1692.htm

Also from Transport Canada:

It won't work if you don't wear it
In order to work, proper lifesaving equipment must be worn at all times. Believing that you can locate, don and fasten a PFD in the water is dangerous for many reasons; adverse wind and wave conditions can make this extremely difficult, if not impossible; you could unexpectedly fall into water and the vessel (with the PFD aboard) could be unreachable; and, cold water can severely impede your ability to don and fasten a PFD in the water.

Never underestimate the protection a flotation device can afford you. It is called lifesaving equipment for a reason.
(http://www.tc.gc.ca/...on-1324.htm#lj6 )




Regardless of what the "Law" says; common sense says, if you aren't wearing it...it's useless.

Terran

Sorry about the "hijack" of your topic, Manmitch, but it's an important issue.

If I'm trolling around at 1.5 mph, I should wear my life jacket , just in case?


If that's the case I better wear a pfd when I'm swimming, sell the 4 wheeler, and put 2 seat belts on my motorbike.

Transport Canada Bulletin: Subject: Wearing And Using Flotation Devices Small Non-pleasure Craft & Small Commercial Fishing Vessels - http://www.tc.gc.ca/...2011-02-eng.htm

My family has buried three members (over the years) who weren't wearing a PFD or Lifejacket, but had them with them. Sh*t happens.

I'm not gonna argue with you about it. It's your life, Bro. Your choice.

ManMitch,

Great to hear. Suggestion: The self inflating types are a little more expensive, but if you take a fall and whack your head; it'll inflate even if your unconscious.

Might sound stupid, but again...sh*t happens. Still , the pull cord PFD is better than wearing nothin.

Stay safe and keep the great videos coming.

So you are buying a pull cord? That's safety? First off, I am a good swimmer, and I did watch the video. But if i got thrown overboard and knocked out a pull cord pfd wouldn't serve me any better than the one under my seat. I don't do any crazy boating, when I'm tubing , the people regardless of age or ability wear a pfd. When I'm trolling around in the lake I don't think it's necessary to wear one.



Just curious astohow many people have been found dead with a pfd on?

Rad,

At least they were found. How many people who drown without one are never found? Or are found after their bodies bloat up, full of gases, and float to the surface?

You ever seen or handled a floater? I have.

Not something you want your family to have to identify.

You're going to do what you wish. Hopefully, you aren't put in a situation where the last thing you think is, "Man was I wrong".

Good luck,

Terran
