rescue vests or tow ropes

Posted by Ed, NY on Apr 27, 2007

Hello paddlers,

I have been debating with myself the relative advantages of buying a NSR type tow rope/belt/bag to use with my current PFD or whether to bust the budget and buy a rescue vest. I would love some discussion as to what people like and do not like in general and specific brand recommendations.

Paddle a LT 16 or 17 on the Hudson, Long island sound, Lake Champlain. etc.

Thanks. Ed
