On a 16 ft boat or greater, isn't it required to carry a throwable pfd in addition to the one for each person on board? I can't seem to find anything on this... I have searched several banks of pictures and don't see a thowable on the tramp or anywhere else. When I have raced, the other h16's didn't put a throwablel pfd on their boat, so I just followed what they did. If you're putting a throwable pfd on your H16, where do you put it to stay out of the way?
Thanks for the info.
to answer your questions, the Coast Guard does require the throwable on boats over 16 foot. I personally dont always carry one on my 16, but when I do, I tie it to the mast step link to get it out of the way.
