A game warden pulled up and ask for his license, life jacket, and fire extinguisher. He showed him it all and then he said, where is your throwable. My buddy ask, why do I need a throwable. He said, because its required by law. My buddy then ask him, well who in the hell is going to throw it to me if I fall in. GW said, you don't have to be a smart a$$ but have a good day and he drove off.
He might have needed the throwable for someone else.

I am reminded of these things as I was first on scene a couple weeks ago of a bass boat vs. pwc 50 minutes after sunset.

Even if they're wrong, not worth the problem. Once they tell me, I try to not draw their attention by complying. No sense making them angry, they'll just find another reason to hassel you. These days life vest when in the boat, example for the kids, and no hassels from Johnny Law. Had 9 in my Stars and Stripes last year, and a wakeboarders in tow. Everyone in a vest, and no beers to be seen, sheriff waved as we went past.

Lucky he just waved.......he could have cited you for over capacity. Good to be on good terms.

That's why skiing private is the best. Although we still get a few "visits" of compliance. The idea of wearing a USCG approved for barefoot is ridiculous. You couldnt get up deepwater, and the falls...<shudder>. My jump suit, while not USCG approved, it's WAY more buoyant than anything out there.

When we go elsewhere, we keep the legal requirements on hand but just avoid the areas we know are "trouble spots."
