While speed of life preserver access might be a consideration for some , the USN launch is Fire Retarding resin as well as having full foam flotation.

In other words knock a 4 ft SQ hole in the hull and it will still float.

Like most folks we carry the preservers to stray legal with the Armed Fed Marine Police (USCG) but dont expect to ever need them .

So far a shock cord motorcycle net or two ,or a 1/4 line lacing (with handy knife) seems to be the easiest.
