The U.S. Coast Guard is making changes that will affect boaters at the Lake. According to a report, the Coast Guard plans to change the way our Personal Floatation Devices are classified to minimize confusion on current labels. The announcement made on October 22nd is leading to a new standards system that will begin to be implemented in 2017. Lifejackets Type I through V will still be legal. The previous system was labeled with a specific note to inform users of where and how to use the jackets. The new system will do away with the appropriate type labeling and replace it with a clear understandable reading to explain exactly what the specific PFD is for and how it should be used.
