    If it wasn't/hadn't been for the life jacket, I would have drowned.

    1. If it wasn't for the life jacket, I would have drowned.

    2, If it hadn't been for the life jacket, I would have drowned.

    Which is the correct sentence? I guess it is #2 because of 'would have' in the sentence.

    Thanks.

    They are both correct.
