Stormy Seas Ultralight Shorty Inflatable Life Vest – Model SV100
This is the best on the market for comfort, safety and convenience. The downside is it’s not Coast Guard approved so you still have to carry one aboard that is. One open water rower commented, “You know it’s there when you need it, but you can’t really feel it.” It has clean lines and nothing for oar handles to hang up on. 21 Lb. buoyancy system.
Colours: Red, Neon Green, Purple
Safety Equipment Kit
This O-ring sealed watertight kit with a nylon lanyard for hanging contains everything needed to meet US and Canadian Coast Coast Guard regulations. It contains 15m of buoyant heaving line, sound signalling device (whistle), watertight flashlight, and the container itself is a bailer.
A plastic jug with the top cut off makes a workable bailer, but this heavier, built-to-last model has a handle – which makes it easier to hold while bailing. A nylon lanyard is included so it can be hung off a mushroom cleat.
