I'd highly recommend this as well...since it also lets you know what is really packed in your liferaft. There was a recent spate of liferaft repacking where the rafts were not repacked but stolen...and rocks and other such stuff were left in place of the raft. If you're watching them repack it, they're probably not able to steal the raft.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
