  • 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 on board any vessel of 16 feet or longer.
  • Flotation devices that are ripped or otherwise in poor condition are not considered approved.

Make sure there is a properly fitting PFD onboard for each passenger.
