    A recovery is NEVER worth the life of a rescuer. A certain amount of risk can be accepted in a rescue situation, but in a recovery PFD's should be the uniform of the day. no exceptions. (Do you not require them when on a boat/for the shore tender? Why were they not on the trailer?). .

    Anyway Glad he could be returned to his family, good work!

    We dont store any gear in our trailer because we share it with the detectives.
    Most of the time I spend on the water is on boats in the ocean.
    Different mindset I guess.

    Nice job on the recovery. I know from experience how that closure really helps the family


    In that type of search situation I would more likely to be wearing a weight belt than a pfd. :no: along with my mask and snorkel. I understand the pfd mentality though...... It just doesn't work for me :)
