PJohanson, thanks for your post.

We have, and will wear the PFDs. We did not buy the cheapest we could find.

My wife and I are in our early 60s (I'm actually mid). We have a truck and slid-in camper. We tested a convertible, at the end of last season, and bought one.

My wife has family in Venice. She is trying to persuade me to go with her and our daughter, in September, for a visit. This thread makes it interesting.
