Penny Wise, Lifetime Foolish

Prioritize safety: Don't skimp on life jackets when buying a boat. Learn the risks of choosing the wrong fit.

Life jackets are often the last equipment purchased when purchasing a boat. As the expenses mount, it’s also an area where some boaters try to save money without understanding the risk. While parents often buy children oversized clothes knowing kids will grow into them shortly, doing so with a life jacket is a dangerous proposition.

This is your reminder that one size does not fit all when it comes to life jackets. As important as it is to wear it, it must be properly fitted.
