We lost a good man a few years back who was very safety conscious. He picked the wrong day to paddle because the weather changed unexpectedly and turned his calm into a nest of big waves.
But, nearly all boat drownings are of people not wearing PFD's. Further, most men who drown after falling off boats have their flies down. Taking a leak from a boat can be dangerous too. So, PFD for paddling and boat-bound piddling.
