    Excellent idea...I've never forgotten my vest but I have forgotten to attach the lanyard to my wrist and once realized it wanted to pop myself on the forehead like in one of the V8 commercials!

    In VA lifejacket being worn properly is mandatory on a PWC. You will get pulled over quick if you don't have one on.

    I keep an extra vest in the storage compartment, but I strap my main vest onto the handlebars, with the handles going through the arm holes of the vest. Two postives, my vest dries up quickly and it's an obvious reminder to put in on when I get in the seat.

    I like the idea of clipping the lanyard to the vest. I'm going to that also.

    What a terrible (and preventable) tragedy.

    Lately, when I just go hang out at the lake, and decide to float around in the water....I wear my life jacket.....

    Sad story....I just wish people would understand....

    Did they find him with a vest on, or without. I keep my lanyard tied to my vest. No brainer. No vest, no ride.

    I always leave my life jacket it my car, so I never have to look for it and put it on the ski when before backing it down the ramp. That way I never forget to put it on, unless I sit on it before riding lol.

    Yes, it seems this happens at least once a season.

    Last year it was a member of the New England Patriots, in New Orleans area.

    Year before, a guy crossing a harbour in storm waves north of Boston.
