Bill believes in always wearing a lifejacket, no matter what size the boat is. He also ensures that his kids and passengers put their lifejackets on as soon as they get on the boat. And as they do a lot of night boating, he believes it is essential for them to wear their lifejackets.
He knows that if you find yourself in a situation where you need a lifejacket, it can be difficult to actually put it on. He says, “I’ve done a lot of boating at night, and I figure if something happens, it’s dark and It’s probably going to be rough, so how are they going to put their lifejackets on when they’re already in the water? I know the regulation says you must have a lifejacket for each passenger, but I make sure the passengers are wearing it as soon as they get on the boat.”
