I was asking about the safety issue of wearing them. So if one was to paddle to Monomoy for instance, would you put them on when you get there or befor? Could you use them to extend the season in a sit on top? I think that if I had time to create an effective seal with tape, I might be inclined to just take them off.
Only a nut would go out in a kayak without a PFD...IMHO.
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.
