Type 1 PFD's

Anyone know a place to buy Type 1's for a good price? I have heard of people getting a bunch in bulk from a cruise line and selling them for a good price. I'm looking to replace what came with our boat last year and need 6.

Thanks

Reasonable prices, and the added benefit of supporting sailnet:


Non-Inflatable P.F.D.s

Having said that, Defender is one of my favorite sources for stuff at a good price, and a quick Craigslist search pulled up a few good deals too.

eBay or Craigslist?

That Coleman deal is almost too good to be true. I am considering swapping out some old West Marine (makes you legal not safe) supply.

Neither, they are on the Coleman outlet store, new. I grabbed 6 as soon as I saw them.

Thumbs up

I just bought 2 Mustang HIT auto inflatables for $231 each here on Sailnet...best price out there and top quality. Don't nickel & dime when it comes to survival.

Same here, just ordered 6 @ $18 each! Best price I saw elsewhere was $40 and list price is something like $60.

Great tip. Thanks.
