What sort of pfd safety vest is the key to remaining safe? The family is planning on going out with my neighbors this coming labor day weekend. I was concerned about my children's safety and need your help. We are taking a vacation and this will be a ocean vacation voyage leaving from Fort Lauderdale to hit Key West. Out in the atlantic. There is a lot of water out there! What sort of safety vest is the key to remaining safe? Big fun is a long boat ride on a pretty day. The boating in monroe, broward and Miami-dade county is just the best. You are sure in for a big treat.
