Equipment you never want to use

We are servicing our life raft and hope to never pop it in need.....
Here it is inflated at Sal's in Alameda.  It passed the overnight pressure test and will need all new safety gear from Winslow.  The pressure bottle will be hydro-tested and the valve replaced.  The service cost about 1/3 the price of a new raft.  Ouch!


  1. I think you need to think of it as "the service saved me 2/3 the cost of a new raft. Phew!"
