You're correct...it's not inconvenient. I've always wore them. There's been times where I've had it on all day, got in, cleaned the boat and realized when climbing into the truck to go home that I still had the thing on. It's not inconvenient at all.Definitely makes me rethink as a sometimes captain and sometimes crew member
On the beautiful weekend we had a few weeks back with smooth water I was on deck leaned against the back rail
One quick maneuver to miss a crab pot and my upper body was over the port rail
I was still secure with my feet on the deck but..
I agree on always wear PFD with PLB
It’s not that inconvenient
Rest In Peace to the fisherman
To the captain crew and family, so sorry for your loss!
