Liferaft location on a Crealock 37

I am planning on installing the cradle for a 4 man winslow in a pelican case just foward of the mast. I have never seen a picture where a Crealock had a raft installed there. I've always seen them installed foward of the traveler. Is there any reason not to place it foward of the mast on the coach roof?

Our earlier PSC37 Podjo had a mount for a raft installed just forward of the mast.

My 1989 Crealock 37 has a six man SOLAS raft mounted forward of the mast. There are times that I feel this particular raft it is a bit bulky, but it actually works OK. It does interfere with viability while sitting in the cockpit, however.

Ours is just forward of the traveler , WE HAVE OUR SPINNAKER POLE MOUNTED ON FORWARD SIDE OF MAST AND i WOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT TRAVELLING TO THE BOW IF WE EVER DID NEED TO USE THE RAFT.

Our 4 man raft is forward of the mast as in the pictures above. I think it is a great location as it interferes with visibility less than if mounted forward to the traveler and provides a convenient step for putting on the sail cover or attaching the main halyard. I had not considered the disadvantage of having to go up there to release it if needed but then I'm not sure any location would be all that much better.

Liferaft storage

I stow my Winslow ( 8 person) life-raft in the cockpit. I built a frame around so it stands upright and is easy to lift out...should I ever need it.
Keeps storage organized and seems to make more room for "stuff"

Whosedream: Interesting! Great idea for actually on passage. I don't think the false floor in my lazarette can take the weight though. There is an aft engine access in the lazarette.
