Bildge Rat and Phil, I also agree that life jackets should be worn but this is just a photo for fun why one should make an issue out of it??

Just a quetion. Is it compulsory to wear a life jacket on a boat? in the UK or in Holland?

If is not what is all the fuss about??

Life jackets?? Hmmmmmmm, try to ware one when you are under 38 deg of heat and then tell me what you think (if you survive the heat exhaustion)
Manos,

Nothing wrong in wearing an inflatable jacket even in 38 degrees of heat. I would even wear a T-shirt under the lifejacket not to get too much tan and a hat to protect my head.

The key word is SAFETY but not many as we have seen understand that.

Hi Andre, Alway safety should be on ones mind when they are out and about with anything. Being a car, bike, boat, plane or even when they walk.
However, all should be done with moderation. This is the point I am trying to make

Yeah but not wearing lifejackets isn't safety in moderation no matter how you look at it.

They might look cool on the boat, but if something had happened it wouldn't have looked quite as good would it?

Although if they had ended up in the water, they would have been "cool" in the tshirts and shorts, bloody cool.

It is the skippers choice!!!!!!!

I insist the everyone on my boat wares one but it is the skippers choice. Their are far more dangerous things go on, ie skippers drinking, towing water-skiers over dive sites, racing boats directly behind them ect. I don't do any of these things but then I ware a life jacket. My point is that we live ina nanny state as it is the question is not about safety but about whether more rules should be imposed on water sports. If we do introduce rules Ie min qualification lifejackets ect where does it stop. Speed limits withing a 10 mile radius of the uk, only being allowed out in certain conditions and certain times of the year ect. I have heard all of these suggestions before. but the question is do we want more rules. ( as a PBI I would say yes ) :-)

My post was supposed to be satirical -Im sorry it didn't hit the spot.(dvd hgv?)

In my view theres really no place for PC or web policing in a site like this.

I don't always wear a jacket and I agree that it is the skippers choice.

Theres a great deal of good advice and suggestions on this site but beware you dont disappear up your own rissoles
