  depends on what you call open water
  Posted by: pblanc on Jan-27-14 5:49 PM (EST)
 

I have paddled in fairly close proximity to shore on a warm water lake without a PFD now and again as I have on a straightforward and relatively narrow Class I stream.

I would not paddle on a wide, deep river or attempt a significant open water crossing without a PFD, however.
