Even now as an adult, it doesn't matter where I go, being around fishermen is ...

Once you're ejected from the boat there's no guarantee that you will be conscious when your body comes to rest in the water. One of the most common complaints about lifejackets is that they're too bulky, or too hot, they now have all ...
