Re: How Many Have a Liferaft?

We have an offshore raft in a canister mounted on the stern rail. If a person singlehands and doesn't want a raft that is there choice. If there are crew on board the captain owes them the extra security provided by a raft and EPIRB. Not to have these because you keep up the maintenance on your boat falls somewhere between hubris and nonsense.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
