So imagine that 1950’s Science Fiction announcer voice here “IT’S TIME FOR . . NEWS OF THE VAGUELY UNIMPORTANT!!!!) That was fun. Anyway, I got a note today that the USCS says it’s time to start using the term “life Jackets” again! Now we should only use the term PFD when describing specific types of life jackets or regulation issues. (Thanks to to Jon Stackpole for gathering the info & Nancy S. for passing it on).
