No matter if you are boarding onto a cruise ship, a sailboat, or a race boat, they all are sea vessels that will be in open water. And what’s the one thing that all vessels ‘should’ have on board? Yes, life rafts.
A life raft is designed and meant to keep crew members, and passengers safe on a vessel that has become uninhabitable and it’s one of the most important equipment to have on your boat during an emergency.
But there are 2 major Life Raft Types - “Recreational Rafts” and “Commercial Rafts”. Both have specifications that every boater should consider before choosing which raft is the best for their vessel.
