 Boating Tips from the US Coast Guard
  1. Buy your own life jacket, and wear it. One size does not fit all. 
  2. Look at the label for size and weight limitations. 
  3. Try it on and check the fit. With straps and buckles secured, the life jacket should not slip over your head or cover your eyes. 
  4. Make sure the life jacket is Coast Guard approved. 
  5. Replace your life jacket if you find air leakage, mildew or rot. 
  6. Never alter a life jacket. It could lose its effectiveness. 
  7. Check your life jackets yearly for floatation and fit. 
  8. Wear a life jacket to set an example for younger children while increasing your chances of survival. 
  9. Take a Safe Boating course. Call 1-800-368-5647
