With winter coming on I've been looking for a short sleeved waterproof vest to wear in the boat, my old ones a bit past it. Looked at oilskins but they don't like being washed all the time. Any ideas, don't want spend a lot.

Cheers

What about a cheap coat/jacket from the wharehouse and cut the sleeves short. I got some leggings today for $29.

I find a life jacket works quite well but then again I'm a bit of a stirrer especially after a nice wine

Hey Kerry ... if you don't mind pink with taffeta trim, then I understand there are some going cheap, that were left over after the last "Hero parade" 
 
If pink is not your colour, apparently there are a few covered with silver sequins & baby blue bows.
The wonder of the internet is that you can be whatever you want. The really peculiar aspect though, is that most people choose to be stupid !!

Should wear a life jacket all the time. I wear a short sleeve jacket that's inflatable, and has insulation. In the water, particularly in winter, it will be the difference between life and death.

I should explain - the life jacket I wear is an ordinary jacket, that's warm and windproof and water resistant; so its nice to wear all the time. If I fall in the water, pull a cord and it inflates. Its short sleeved - can get models with long sleeves that zip off, so good for cold season. Mine is Hutchwilco.

Kaiwaka vests are good. I have a Hutchwilco vest life jacket that is really cpool. Best lifejacket I've owned by a long way. Keeps the wind chill off and it's manually inflatable so I put some air in it before I \get on the boat.

Sounds good but how do you wash it when it gets covered in bait and crap. I like the inflatable life jackets but I prefer to wear a normal one, but I will take a look when I'm in burnsco next.

Does the inflatable bladder come out so you can wash it and do you replace the gas canister every year
