In Canada, they must be worn to count, we always have two extra up in the storage compartment as well.

Here in Wisconsin inflatables have to be warn to count and life jackets have to be out in the open for each person in the boat. If stopped and life jackets are stowed in a compartment it is a fine.

That's not the law in Wisconsin (well, the life jackets part, you're correct about the inflatables).

You must have one throwable flotation device that is "immediately accessible" (i.e. out of storage, we throw ours by the driver's feet under the console). You must have one wearable for each person in the boat and they must be "readily accessible". As long as you can get to it quickly it should be legal.

I see so many people with life vests strapped to their seat backs. I always wonder if they fall in, do they come back into the boat to put them on before drowning?

I wear my Mustang Elite H.I.T any time I am in the boat. I also carry a conventional vest as a back up.
