  • The U.S. Coast Guard requires one wearable PFD for each person aboard, of appropriate size for the person intended.
  • At least one Type IV PFD (throwable device) must be kept onboard any vessel of 16 feet or longer.
  • Flotation devices that are ripped or otherwise in poor condition are not considered approved.

Be sure to have a properly fitting PFD on board for each passenger.
