Not trying to chap anyone's hind end here but it does sound like a safety violation. Anytime a life jacket gets a rip in the outer covering, it can allow water or moisture inside onto the floatation. This can cause it to dry rot and no longer be effective. I dont think the guy was trying to give you a hard time. Just my 2 cents
Tight lines and popped riggers
