I have just bought my first lifejacket for boat fishing.
I have always worn one when boat fishing, but have up until know borrowed one from the boat hirer or from friends.
This simply wasn't an ideal solution, so i bit the the bullet and after much deliberation, chatting with people in the know and after a web search, I decided on a Crewsaver automatic 275N lifejacket with harness.
This is the same one as I have been using on the last two occasions whilst out on the boast, so I know it suits my style of fishing and is very comfortable to wear.
Best price I found online was £149.95.
