[NYCkayaker] Distinguishing Volunteers on the Water

Arm bands and pole flags could work. HarborLAB escorts will generally
have distinct and uniform boats (the public fleet is uniform too,
emphasizing that distinction), though those with private boats are
welcome to assist. HarborLAB volunteers will have blue Guardian lights
on night paddles.

Another easy fix would be uniform baseball caps or other such useful
shade brimmed hats, maybe in orange?

Best regards,

I am curious about how other boathouses distinguish volunteers from
guests on the water during public programs.  Inwood Canoe Club has
tried T-shirts and they didn't seem to stand out that well under
pfd's.  We have these crazy neon green baseball hats that are great
for helping guests find ICC volunteers, but some of our volunteers
don't like hats at all or want a brim all the way around.

What do other Clubs do?
