Well, I had my 1999 2520 inspected by the USCG Aux and I passed but he recommended one thing which makes sense.......On the one throwable flotation device, he said I should add 50+- feet of polypropylene rope and attach it to one end. His reasoning was that it floats and (1) wont foul your prop as easily as one that sinks and (2) as it floats, would be easier for someone to grab if the throw was a bit off. I was looking at this rope and found it comes in different sizes and color (black or yellow). I am going to go with the yellow for visibility but what about size? 1/4? 5/16? 3/8? 1/2? Your thoughts?
