    Drowning 74%
      70% no PFD

    One could deduce that Poseiden dislikes the extra effort required to pull
    down buoyant objects, therefore people who wear floatation devices are taken
    less often.
    
     Or, one could try to hang about in the water for a day and night with a
    PFD, then try to repeat the experience without one. What do the statistics
    matter?
    
     Sailors who have a macho problem wearing PFD's should be reminded: Wear it
    as  courtesy to the underpaid
    men who go out in all wx looking for MOBs. It may not save my life, but it
    will let them find my body and go home sooner.
