As far as safty stuff what is required in a drift boat? i carry life jackets and have some small first aid stuff. But am I required to carry throw coshins, horns whistles and so on?
I have no idea, I have never been checked, but think it is just lifejackets. I carry nothing, and will deal with the citation when it happens. Call me a law breaker, but that is the truth. If you pitch in the Clinch with the water running with or without lifejacket, your life is in peril. Of course a lifejacket would help, but I don't plan on ending up in it, and rarely if ever am on it during high water periods.
