Liferaft selection Log-In to Post/Reply

Hi All,

Thanks for all your amazing answers to my “How can I stop my boat from sinking?” post. I have a follow up questions now about safety equipment since I am going to buy a liferaft this month.

On my previous transatlantic crossings I used various types of liferafts, but due to the higher latitude environment I am looking for a liferaft that is more robust can take heavy weather, protect from exposure and comes with or can be packaged with survival suits.

I look forward to your suggestions!!!!

As a virtual assistant, I don't know lots about this kind of stuff but I found a phrase that looks fitting to this. This goes that the liferaft might be your last possibility of survival in case your boat sinks. The regulation require the raft possess a canopy, and that we go further to express that you shouldn't think about a raft that does not possess a self-constructing canopy, having a support filled through the CO, bottle once the raft is inflated. For me, the canopy erected by holding them track of a paddle braced in the center of the raft are ajoke, and also have room about the offshore sailboat.

Another significant awareness happens when necessary the portion is. For illustration, if you are changing a little sphere, not necessarily including essential significance on your own Exposure, you might continually be secure selecting a alternative or third-party products.
