Looks plausible.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Don't know, but I like their sense of humor. They should be doing the airline safety videos.

AFAIAC, if one of those powersailers goes on the rocks, it's Gods will and it should be left alone to be destroyed by the sea.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken, opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

I think I'd rather buy one of these and hook it up to a compressor, small air tank, or foot pump. Looks about as sturdy as their kit.

PS Notice on the deployment pictures on the McGreggor that the waterline is in the same place before and after inflation.

For routine running aground, I can't see paying $400 for this thing.

On the other hand, if you hit a rock or coral head hard, and hole your boat, this might be a nice thing to have to help keep you afloat while you effect repairs.

It would probably work for a small day sailor, but I have serious doubts that it'd do anything for a boat over 20 or more feet.

Hmmm, my boat weighs 11,000 Lbs. Even if it did as advertised, it wouldn't do much of anything.

Doubt a small inflator can put enough air into those floats to generate enough lift to do anything.
