Not sure in TN, but NC requires us to have a PFD for every person on board. Under 13 years of age must have the PFD ON
! We are also required to have a noise-making device, (ei: horn, etc). I spoke with a local Wildlife Officer here and he stated to me that a referee whistle would indeed qualify for me in my 13ft Outcast cataraft. So that's what I carry in a boat bag, a small sports whistle! I believe TN requires the same if I'm not mistaken.
