Offshore PFD policy on your boat..
A day with Lin and Larry Pardey.

I just recently had the pleasure of spending a day with Lin and Larry. Steve Callahan as well. These are people who have sailed thousands and thousands of miles offshore... What surprised me, was that none of them believe in wearing PFD's or the use of lifelines offshore. Not unless it gets really bad.. This surprised me. I have cruised offshore, crossed the Pacific and always wore a PFD and shackled to a Jack line when offshore above 5 knt. And ALWAYS when cruising by any artificial steering.... What are your thoughts?
