Revere Life Jackets Save Lives

Extending gratitude to Revere for the spectacular reliability of their life jackets during the Punta Gorta's Redfish Cup Event.  We were competing in a 24" yellow fin tower boat and blasted off at daylight for an exciting day of fishing.  

When we entered the Gulf of Mexico the boat caught a wave wrong.  The boat then did a 180 degree turn at 50mph causing the driver to be ejected from the boat.  This also left myself with two broken ribs and large bruises all over. 

We continued our voyage north to have our schools of fish not cooperate with us. We would like to thank Revere for their lifevests it definitely saved my partners life.
