Hope this is timely. Because of a paranoid son-in-law, our grand children
, ages 5 and 7, are going sailing with us for the first time. Our son-in-law knows we cruised for 10 years, licensed Capt., 55+ years sailing, blah-blah-blah. Just was checking the kid's PFD
, type III, first line says use:Sailing. Read further down, and it is for use on non-commercial, recreational vessels less than 40 feet. Quite a surprise. Quickly checked WM advisor in the catalogue, and no where is there mention about size of vessel in product description. There is no mention of a child's PFD for longer than 40'.
We are still going sailing, not sure if there is a difference if they fall off a 41' boat or a 39' boat, but it will have to be addressed soon.
