The big fish are out there; what’s stopping you from chasing them?
The last thing on your mind when you go out fishing is ditching your craft. But accidents happen, be it from weather-related issues, or boat malfunction. It pays to be prepared.
A life raft is designed to keep everyone together and out of the water, providing protection from the elements and creating a larger visual while awaiting rescue. It is the single most important safety equipment, that you never hope to use.
What life raft is right for me?
There are several factors to consider when purchasing a life raft.
- Are canyons in your vocabulary?
- If yes, you’ll need an offshore life raft
- If you’re planning on staying closer to home, a coastal life raft will work
- How do you want to store your life raft—Canister or valise?
- Determine servicing needs—most rafts require 3-year servicing, some offer 5-year servicing.
- Are you fishing in cold waters? You’ll need an inflatable floor to protect against hypothermia.
When evaluating life rafts you will typically find a quality/performance/features versus price “value matrix”. Simply put, you'll get what you pay for with higher quality rafts constructed from more durable materials, have more inherent features, and offer a longer usable life. .
