Re: offshore sailing
might want to think about a winslow in a valise. small light and high quality. in a 30'foot putting a hard cannister on deck doen't make sense. look at other threads on this site for discussion. way to go is a new one as repacking about as expensive as getting a new one. with 30' boat a 4 man should suffice unless you're going to put 6 little people ( my wife's 4'10") on your boat. Look at any of the blue water race web sites for outline of what you should put in your ditch bag to go along with the raft.
