Dinosaur Monument Updated pfd Regs?
I was looking over the 2019 Regs for my upcoming trip and noticed what I believe to be a change in the way PFDs are regulated in the monument. I'm fairly certain that I remember the rule where you had to have a spare for every boat. I remember because it was a bit of a pain in the ass to have to round up 6 extra type 3,5 jackets for my trips. However this years language seems different and what I would consider more consistent with other river trip regulations in the West. Has anyone else noticed this change?
"A.Life Preservers and RegulationsEach participant MUST have a serviceable U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation device (PFD). At least one extra PFD must be carried for every 10 persons on the trip (i.e. a trip with 1 to 10 participants must have at least one extra PFD, and a trip with 11-20 participants must have at least two extra PFDs). The PFDs must be maintained in good and serviceable condition in compliance with the USCG standards AND MUST BE WORN AND FASTENED PROPERLY AT ALL TIMES WHILE ON THE RIVER (except from Cove Campsite to Rainbow Park boat ramp on the Green River). All PFDs must have a USCG approved label stating the PFD is designed for whitewater rafting, canoeing, rescue, sailing, paddling, and/or kayaking.
