Boating with kids
USCG rules state that Inflatable life jackets aren't approved for any one under 16 years of age.
Yep, the most recent link shared are the USCG regulations which apply to federal waters. The one I shared was from the WDNR which also refers to federal waters but says nothing at all about the use of inflatables on inland waterways.
Lake Michigan is federal.
Winnebago is considered federal, but they are either changing or trying to change that to WI
WI rule may be in tune with USCG regarding inflatables with the proper fit statement?
edit: after looking at inflatable vests, didn't find any child sizes, most are designed for someone over 80 lbs, and with a 30"+ chest
Look down in body - must be 16 to wear inflatable.
