Float tubes

Recommended Posts

I came from Kamloops in 1988 where I used a float tube.  Never saw another human being in these parts partake...  Buddies stopped by warden last week.. I think prob. from Presque Isle district. (Young Fella)  Stated Life jackets are the law...Welll...my question is....How many people have died fishing from a float tube IN MAINE since 1988???  And was this slipped into midnight legislation to gain more money for the State Of Maine?  Or, is the warden looking for a fight??

Life jackets required in float tubes is just BS...the float tube is a life jacket! Think throwable ring in a boat..this is pure crapola...too much nanny state!

Interesting...do my kids have to wear a life jacket when they play on tubes at my camp?   I don't think so.

Having said that i always wear an inflatable life vest when I  float tube.

Bridog,

If that is enforced then every man, woman, and child that swims at camp or at the beach had better have a preserver on when they are in a  tube catching sun...Because it is the same thing..  Can of worms..
