PFD question / Anchor question
I've got a type III PFD--flyfishing pfd from Bean's, on sale from 50 to $15 a few years back. Question: should I upgrade to a whitewater PFD if I want max protection? If so, what do you recommend?
I'd like to get away without an anchor for most trips. Assuming that I'm not fishing from the boat, in what situations do you still find an anchor worth the trouble? 10 ft. pontoon boat. I know that on steep banks it's much easier just to drop anchor than to tie up; are there other situations that you'd want one even for a pontoon?
