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.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
