Boat Cop· Registered
The standard would be a 50 mph impact vest. the law says you have to have 1 life vest that fits each person on the boat plus a type 4 throwable ( butt cushion type). You can also use the inflatable vest type in the boat. allthough they do not count as a vest unless they are worn. So, if you have 4 people on the boat and 4 inflatables in the hatch, they are not going to count. They have to be worn. the other mandatory equipment you need is a fire ext. then you are good to go. You do not have to have a oar, horn, whistle so on.
