I am an Ohio resident and hunt mostly western Pennsylvania. I do more layout hunting than shore hunting and have a question about the life jacket law. The legal definition of a boat is a floating means of transportation on the PA watercraft web site also in Ohio and in the dictionary. A layout being is a floating means of concealment not transportation if it was, it would necessary to put as in my case OH numbers on it. A layout is not specified in the written law like a kayak or canoe or BOAT UNDER 16 feet that would mean layouts are not included.
