I'd never heard of this before, but a buddy of mine insists on the following rule when we have kids on board after dark and the more I think about it, the more sense it makes and it will now be considered a best practice on my boat!

After dark, pin or tie an activated glow-stick to the children that are on your boat. We used zip-ties and tied the glow-stick to the zipper on the life jacket.

This way if they do fall overboard you'll have a visual indicator to help you find them - apparently the glow can be easily seen from the air too.

Just wanted to pass this on just in case the unthinkable happens.
