The best advice about PFD's is to wear one. Most states require each person in a boat to have a PFD, which needs to be in good condition, proper size, and readily accessible. A proper fit will be snug, but still allow you some freedom of movement. Tip of the Day: Test your PFD annually and make sure they are in good working order. If not, it's money well spent to get a new one.
