Your life jacket photo could win you an inflatable life jacket

June 2008 News

One winner each, selected from four categories, will receive a Mustang inflatable life vest valued at $150. The categories include: fishing photos, holding a catch, family photos and the best fishing story that accompanies a photo. Everyone in a photo must be wearing a life jacket.
"A life jacket helps ensure you'll make it back home safely," said Mike Pellerin, director of BoatU.S. Angler. "Over two-thirds of all fatal boating accident victims drowned, and of those, 87 percent were not wearing their life jacket. You just never know when wind, weather, waves or other factors will conspire against you."
Pellerin said the biggest complaint from anglers about wearing a life jacket is that they are uncomfortable. "But if you haven't taken a look at the new inflatable or sports-style vests, you're missing out. You can bait a hook, cast with ease and stay cool and comfortable all day long," he added.

From the nation's largest association of recreational boaters, BoatU.S. Angler offers services such as on-the-water and on-the-road towing, insurance, fishing and safety information, fuel and shopping discounts, and helps protect the interests of boat-owning freshwater anglers.
