November 1st - Lifejacket Time in NY State

Time for a quick Frogma PSA today:

Welcome November!  Here in New York State, that means the lifejacket law is in effect. If you are going out in any recreational craft of 21 feet or less, you need to be wearing a properly fitting lifejacket. This continues to be true up until the 1st of May.

I still think this is one of the most sensible boating safety rules ever. Press release from 2009 (first year the regulation went into effect) here.
