    I need to toss in that I've had my full suit on before and forgot my vest. Ya think everything is good you feel the suit on your chest and oops. Thank God for the friends asking why I'm not sporting my vest.

    My brother got to the lake a little later than me a few weeks ago and he is 19 so still a little numbskulled. Anyway, I just happen to be going by the loading ramp and see him idling through the no wake with no vest and I start yelling at him asking him wtf he's doing. He looks down and realizes he didn't even know he had no vest on. This is why I always put mine on before I even back the trailer in.

    Oh and I'm sorry to hear about this.

    I wear my jacket if just taking the ski from the trailer to the dock(like 50 feet) when I going to park the truck.Once I was swiming with my vest near by floating in the water,so after I'm done I trow the vest up on the ski,start to pull myself up on the ski and slip due missing rear mat falling hitting my head on the ski, luckly it was a big ole couch and I landed in the footwell seeing stars,if I would fell the water it would been 50/50 thing on me making it.You just can't be to safe out there.

    Yep, I triple check before we leave the house, put the jackets on the skis on trailer before the wife and kids get on there...usually have to help Hannah with hers (8yo) and we carry an extra jacket of each size in the tralier box. Last year I saw some idiots tubing behind a Sea-Doo Speedster boat wo vests on.

    Re: Jet Skier still missing in Keweenaw

    I forgot to wear my vest once years ago, riding at dusk in rough water. Had my jacket on & key was strapped to my wrist so I just didn't realize it, looking back I'm damn lucky.

    Now I connect the DESS key cord to my vest so the boat don't run unless the vest is on.
