Re: Life raft. Pros and Cons'

There's a difference between discussing whether carrying safety equipment is a good thing and discussing the unintended consequences that can come from carrying it. While in theory a liferaft is a...

Re: Life raft. Pros and Cons'

Actually it's exactly a failure of judgement that is my concern. The statistics on people who have jumped into rafts and had their boat still floating are clear and present, and while sitting here in...

Re: Life raft. Pros and Cons'

Re: Life raft. Pros and Cons'

Propane isn't much more likely than other fuels to cause a boat fire, it just causes explosions. Liferaft or no, the only thing that will save you from that is not being there.

Thanks
