    Lifejackets should be worn, but in the U.S. you don't necessarily have to. In my state if you are under 16 yrs. you have to wear a jacket, if your older you don't have to, I guess your considered superhuman. lol

    Remember to use VHF channel 16 for all Distress Calls and learn the Phonetic Alphabet.
