SWITLIK’s raft pack is deisgned and tested to make the raft deploy right-side up. The SWITLIK signature convertible canopy system allows the CPR to be inflated with the canopy still furled. This allows for easier boarding from either the water or your vessel. Once in the CPR, you can quickly inflate the arch tubes with the separate C02 inflation system and zip close the Bimini top cover for protection.
The CPR comes equipped with four wide, stiff rung, boarding ladders for ease of boarding from any side even wearing a life jacket. When the canopy is furled, you could get multiple people in from the water, fast.
The CPR is packed in the smallest and lightest weight packing possible, allowing it to be easily deployed by anyone on board your vessel. The raft is vacuum sealed inside either a soft valise or hard fiberglass container. Both options are compact enough to be carried aboard boats of any size.
Most single tube life rafts have two separate air chambers with internal airtight bulkheads, where a puncture or leak in either chamber will result in the loss of half the raft’s floor area. The SWITLIK CPR has two separate chambers using internal sleeves that perform like the inner tube of a car tire that can be manually inflated if a puncture occurs, in order to retain the buoyancy of the tube.
