Get a vacuum packed raft...

I've recently bought a vacuum packed but secondhand liferaft. The liferaft was packed (new) in 2005 and on the canister says it expires 2006. I phoned the servicing shop who originally packed it.

Their advice: "she'll be right... Unless you are racing, in which case it must be in date, there's no need to have it serviced for at least another 12 to 24months..."
