    Boat safety

    May I thank everyone so far for there views and comments so far. Some have stated what I was asking in my original question of other boat owners who have the same set up as mine in what is the best solution I could use for the safety of my boat and others as in the pass other boat safety inspections have never picked up my boat for this important issue hence way I’m trying to understand for my safety as well as others so no one will get hurt am all for the BSS and I do know the rules after being on the water 23 yrs but if you don’t ask i will never know what is right or wrong
