I did once. I was paddling by myself too and I felt so uncomfortable without it. I was in LI Sound but just stayed along shore. (I'm a good swimmer and roller too)
I keep a spare PFd and paddle in my trunk and even an old spray skirt and many times I have bailed out friends who forgot something.
Only beginners who know nothing paddle without PFDs. This is a good winter blues type reading thread. Next post should be "why wear a PFD if you know how to swim".
