Any thoughts were to find the throwable PFD-Life Rings. I guess BW amd WM have them wondered if any marine stores may have as well or more reasonable priced !!!

Check the web or BPS maybe.
It's a sunk cost; have to have at least one.
Can't really put a $$$$ on safety equip in my opinion.

Trainee,

Unless you are dead set on a ring, your throwable device has to be a Type IV PFD, which can be a CG approved cusion, which is much cheaper and easier to store than a ring.

When I bought my last boat the guy had a 36" dia ring on a 21' boat, damn thing look likes it belonged on a Carnival Cruise Ship. I got a round piece of glass and made a table out of it. As Slipsinker said those rings don't come cheap.

Thanks,
Butch
