We have had the joy of 2 of them. :)

The life vests generally work out well. However, if you have a pudgy little girl / boy, the vests tend to squeeze their cheeks and face.

I don't think we ever zipped up the vests all the way on either one of them............(actually had to take a bit of padding out :eek: but just enough to allow for a more snug fit.)

One of our sons had problem with breaking out in a rash after wearing life vest all day. Problem solved with him wearing a "rash' guard t-shirt underneath. May help to change to different make of life vest too.

Looks good Jeff. I had Cody in his last weekend at a hotel pool. It works very well.

How old were your kids when you started taking them on the boat. I have a 2.5 year old that loves to go out in the boat. Hopefully she will ski this year. But we also have a 2 month old. Is it safe to bring him in the boat already? Are there any laws that say how old passengers have to be? Thanks.

No laws on age minimum. (to my knowledge, which is severely limited) Only laws on what type of vests they have to wear and how old they have to be before they can stop wearing them. That Varies by state. Many states will dictate which type vests (I, II, III) should be warn by children and the weight ranges for them. Check with your local marina or dealer, they should have literature and guidelines.

Don't know when ours will be skiing. My wife first skied at age 4 1/2. She was driving the boat pulling her dad on slalom by age 9.

I can't remember where I read it......but I printed it out and its on my wall!
Having been in the middle of my share of problems, its something I now remember when a member of my sales team comes to me with a problem.

I like to change them occasionally too when something hits me like that quote did................
