If there is one thing you can bet on is that my boat will not leave the trailer until my new lifeline Jacket arrives. I have been going to the lake for 27 years and always said that I just couldnt afford a race jacket. even worse I have taken other people for a pass and could only offer them a standard life jacket. Im an idiot and always felt safe enough with what i had but knew I should get a real jacket and kept saying "some day I will" I even had a good friend dropped by my house with his lifeline jacket and was going to loan it to me before I left to the lake, but it didnt fit Me. This has changed my way of thinking. Im still in shock and can olny say my heart goes out to him and his family.
