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.
