I use a inflatable one when I’m on the boat Type 2.
i keep a type 4 on the boat as required
I make my kid wear a type 2 non inflatable when on the boat
i have a type 1 for everyone on the boat always and make them put it on if it is bad out.
I would wear a type 2 I guess if I was swimming with it?
find a ymca and get the kids swimming lessons nothing can help more than that and paying attention to them.
read the drowning does not always look like drowning thread
a neoprene ski jacket will work most of the time
arm floats will not save your kids
send me a pm and I’ll help you out with some I have some kids vest I’ll send u

Before summer Academy will have their house brand neoprene vests for $25.(or they have dinner so for years, hopefully do so again) They are not bad and the price is hard to beat.
