Do I need a floatation device on my shipboard hammock swing

Hammock Swings and Boating Safety

Boat lovers can install hammock swings on board, and some like to hang a hammock or hammock swing off the bow for a truly luxurious seagoing experience. Those who choose this option should install a life preserver or other floatation device on the hammock swing in case of an emergency. In an extreme case, should the hammock swing fall into the water, the occupant can immediately reach for the life preserver instead of having to wait for someone to throw a line or floatation device into the water. When using a hammock swing over the water, it's a very good idea to require a life jacket, just in case.
