FWD: Regarding Killswitches and Life vests.

I always wear my killswitch when the big motor is running.  Always.  I can't think of a reason not to.  But, even though I know I'm not alone on this - I'm still some what ashamed to admit, I've always been lackadaisical regarding my life vest, wearing it based on the situation.

After seeing some pictures from a Facebook friends tournament experience this past Sunday, I've found reason to also always wear the life vest.  In the past, I've looked at it as more of a trivial kind of thing, being that I've got myself a little runabout with a 90 horse, but as Rich's latest blog entry can tell you, you never know what is under the water that you may hit.  Water conditions change all the time, not only daily, but sometimes several times during the day.

When I look at the pictures, I can't help but think "that could have been me..."

It's definitely time to make a trip to Cabelas and get one of those fancy-shmancy inflatables and ditch that crappy old ski vest.

It's a compelling read.  So, if you haven't seen it yet, check it out.  Otherwise, be safe.
