What kind of life jackets do I have to have onboard my boat?

Indiana boating laws require that there must be one USCG approved wearable life jacket ( type I, II, III, V) onboard the watercraft for each person onboard. The life jacket must be the proper size to fit the person intended to wear it, and must be in serviceable condition.

Boats 16 feet in length or longer, (excluding canoes and kayaks), must have one throwable type IV (ring buoy, seat cushion) onboard the boat. IC 14-15-2-6(b)
