I am a big advocate of wearing PFDs, however, they don't have PFDs on because they are in Florida, in marsh creeks or flats that are about a foot to 3 foot deep and the bank is about 8 to fifteen feet away. If you fall out of the yak, you just stand up. The only thing a PFD would do is make it harder to stand up. Besides, if they had PFDs on, it would obstruct the view. Women in yaks and you are looking for a PFD!!!!!!!
Nice to see MudGirl with a nice red, tell her I said hello.
When we start a rant like this, saying "I'm with "insert name here" would not be a good idea. I will refraing from talking about where do you and he fish, Brokeback Bay, and so on. This subject here is WOMEN IN KAYAKS and not PFD safety. I would also normally ask how does one paddle a kayak with such a huge stick up there. But I was in the military and am a bigfan of sophmoric humor but hose with sticks in bad places will get upset, so I'll refrain from going there too. Do not take any of this the wrong way, I just have ahard time holding back on some things. None of this was personal, blah, blah, blah. Also, in Florida, I do ont see many wearing PFD's but I highly encourage everyone to wear one, however, we are talking about WOMEN IN YAKS here, so I'll start another thread about PFD's and we can talk about hte most beautiful things on the planet. WOMEN!
I wear my PFD MOST of the time but not ALL of the time. I can swim pretty good. If you are worried about drowning in 3' of water or can't swim across 100' of warm water you should stay away from the water. Seriously, like move to Oklahoma. Give me a break.
