Thumbs up Saw one at a boat show and liked it....

as I subscribe to the Pardeys' concept of a liferaft that can be sailed/rowed.

It is however a little heavy.

The basic dinghy weighs about 128 lbs. With all accessories and equipment (exposure canopy, sailing rig, sea anchor, etc.), it weighs about 168 lb.

Except for that its on my short list next time.

As its made of polyethylene I think it may outlive most of us.
