Re: Which emergency use fibreglass matting should I have?
I think 2 ft seas are about max capability of a dinghy. Mine has a range of about 50 miles (estimate) if the tank is full.
Iíd definitely use it in tame near shore conditions, as itís hanging on the davits. I donít think itís of any use offshore.
Stories of sailing past life rafts ended with the availability of EPIRBs. We have one in the ditch bag and another in a hydro release bracket on the mothership. VHF and spare batteries in ditchbag too.

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