Life Jacket Test

With recent actions by both the Army Corps of Engineers and the US Coast Guard exploring mandatory life jacket wear, we wanted to examine the range of life jackets currently available and evaluate their performance and comfort. The Foundation last looked into life jackets back in 2003 with our test of inflatable life jackets. Since then inflatables have come a long way, but we have also seen diversification in the life jacket market with new designs targeting different types of boating and water activities.



Access from the water is very accessible from your boat to the deck of the Hudson Water club! By far the most accessible restaurant and huge deck on the lower Hudson River is the Hudson Water Club at Haverstraw Marina.

That included fishing, hunting, trapping, and how to operate a boat. These children were perfectly capable of handling the boat and going fishing by the time they were twelve years old.

A Different Kind Of Snowbird

As I was about to leave Liberty Landing Marina by car on January 4th, something a little unusual peeked my interest. It was a beautiful Down East sedan coming past the fairway in a light snow. I stopped to check it out. As the boat got closer it executed a perfect landing. There was the captain, comfy at the wheel in a light sweater vest, and his lovely mate. She stepped onto the deck in winter garb, leaned over with the stern line, and snagged the dock cleat with a single wave of her arm. She then moved to the foredeck and did the same for the forward line… a winter boating ballet.
