    Some info on flotation rates here How to Choose a Lifejacket

    I use 15o N auto inflators so even if I was to go over and bang my head and knock myself out then they'll go off automatically, they still have the manual pull and the whistle and reflective tape but given the 17 stone that you mention you will need to up the rating of your jacket to maybe 275N

    I'm about 11 and a half stone so you can see why I think you need to uprate, take into account extra winter clothing and it starts to add up ,if you want I'll have a look and see what make mine are, I have 2 from 1 manufacturer and three from another but will have a shufty later
