do I or don't I, that is the question. it is the same question just a little different when being asked if you leave you frig running while towing. some say yes, some say no. it is a safety thing and IMHO, my family is worth every penny I spend on safety equipment. some people boat with out wearing a life vest, some people are even crazy enough to climb Mt Hood during December. I am not one of them. I was a officer on a local fire dept, saw a lot of things happen to other people. Bad things at that. I think I'm alive because I applied ways of not doing things that may have caused a wreck, a fire , or some other tragedy.
