I chose to go with a 6 person raft as there are chances that we may get up to 4 guests while in the Bahamas, otherwise I would have gone with a 4 person raft (wich is also cheaper).

There was a "soft news" piece in a paper this week about the gent who literally invented the inflatable lift raft for ww2 pilots. Things haven't changed much in 50-60 years, but I keep saying to myself, there's got to be a better way. Something that gets "canned" with a 10-year shelf life, no repacks and nonsense along the way. After all, hermetical sealing is not a new art form, and materials have progressed just a tad since ww2.
Maybe we could get DARPA to offer prize money...
