Time to show my ignorance and ask for some insight. I am not a commercial operator. I want some survival suits/ immersion suits on board my boat for added safety. Does it make a difference if they are SOLAS approved or USCG approved? It should not make a difference if I stay non commercial, but for resale or future plans it would be nice to have as many options open. Also does a survival suit cover any of the USCG type designations? For example can a survival suit replace a Type II device on board my vessel?
Thanx ahead of time.
