Yacht Hybernation



No matter what size the ship, in northern states, boats need protection while they hibernate.xxxxxxxxx

Some passengers on a boat may not want to wear life jackets because they may be uncomfortable or may feel restricted in their movement. Additionally, some may feel that wearing a life jacket is unnecessary or inconvenient.

The most comfortable life jackets for boat passengers are those that have adjustable straps and breathable, lightweight materials. Inflatable life jackets are also comfortable and allow for more freedom of movement than traditional foam-filled jackets. There are also hybrid designs that combine foam and air-filled components for greater comfort.
